The move allowed BT to mount a serious challenge to Sky’s dominance in the pay-TV market for the first time. However, BT has refused to announce subscriber figures amid rumours it has failed to convince its customers to sign up. center_img Thursday 7 October 2010 9:46 pm KCS-content whatsapp Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryUndoTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailUndoSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesUndoBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItUndoBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeUndomoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comUndoMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesUndoElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldUndolast_img read more

It is a piece of village, an empty space, an allotment, a square plot of farmland planted with vines that has never been built on, occupied by just a small self-built shed to house tools. Three of its four edges are defined by the proximity of old constructions in this small rural village, and the fourth is open to lovely views of the Empordà area. Our task was to complete this fragment of village.Save this picture!First Floor PlanThe programme, for two related families, was for two second homes and a guest house containing shared service spaces. The project  was addressed as a single construction that responded to this dual programme  by means of formal unity: drawing what used to be an empty  space into the built environment and causing it to merge with its limits.Project gallerySee allShow lessCommunity Centre for Evangelical Reformed Church in Würenlos / Menzi Bürgler Archite…Selected Projects”Casa Futebol” Proposes a Different Olympic Legacy For Brazil’s StadiumsMisc Share Architects: Sergi Serra Casals & Marta Adroer Puig Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” 2009 Projects Dos Casas Unifamiliares + Pabellón de Visitas / Sergi Serra Casals & Marta Adroer PuigSave this projectSaveDos Casas Unifamiliares + Pabellón de Visitas / Sergi Serra Casals & Marta Adroer Puig Houses Area:  408 m² Area:  408 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ArchDaily CopyHouses•Albons, Spain Photographs Spain ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officeSergi Serra Casals & Marta Adroer PuigOfficeFollowProductsGlassSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAlbonsHousesSpainPublished on July 12, 2014Cite: “Dos Casas Unifamiliares + Pabellón de Visitas / Sergi Serra Casals & Marta Adroer Puig” 12 Jul 2014.

Indiana Farm Bureau to Celebrate 100 Years at Annual Convention

first_img Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Indiana Farm Bureau to Celebrate 100 Years at Annual Convention Indiana Farm Bureau to Celebrate 100 Years at Annual Convention By Eric Pfeiffer – Oct 3, 2018 SHARE Indiana Farm Bureau to Celebrate 100 Years at Annual ConventionIndiana Farm Bureau will be holding its annual conference Dec. 6-8 in Fort Wayne at the Grand Wayne Convention Center. Registration is open now and it’s a special year for IFB. IFB President Randy Kron said, “This will be the kickoff of our 100th year for Indiana Farm Bureau. 1919 was when Indiana Farm Bureau was started, so we’re going to come to celebrate 100 years, our birthday, all the way through from the start of this convention and then the finale will be at the 2019 convention.”He said they have a fantastic lineup of speakers at this year’s convention. Keynote speakers include motivational speaker Colonel Danny McKnight, a retired US Army Ranger who was portrayed in the movie Black Hawk Down, and Charlie Arnot, CEO for the Center for Food Integrity. Kron says Arnot will cover consumer thoughts and trends in food.“It’s for the farmers, for our members, to understand what consumers are thinking. How do we communicate with them? What’s important to them? Those things are really, really important as we move forward because you can read a lot of negative things on the Internet. We’ve got to figure out how to communicate better with the consumers.”Kron added that the networking that takes place at the event is often times just as valuable.“There’s no doubt we’re in challenging times right now with agriculture. And being able to talk to each other and figure out what the little things are that we can do. If you can save a penny here or there, that’s going to make a difference this next year or two on whether we survive or not. And those discussions bring a lot of value to our farm.”Visit the Indiana Farm Bureau website to register for this year’s event.Registration is also open for the American Farm Bureau Federation’s Annual Convention being held in New Orleans Jan. 11-16.
