Some architects are masochists. Some architects are readily self-destructive, not in a fun adventurous way, but in a boring “I’m over-worked, exploited and unfulfilled” way. As research emerges, it appears working conditions can lead to some significant mental health issues within the profession.Save this picture!© Tess KellyMany of the issues surrounding working conditions are detailed in the (surprisingly popular) essay I wrote: Work/Life/Work Balance published on Parlour, Archdaily and the AMA website. I didn’t make public at the time that the essay was a result of my own struggles with mental health. In many ways the essay was not just a rant about working conditions, as much as it was a catharsis.Save this picture!© Tess Kelly“In Australia, it’s estimated that 45 per cent of people will experience a mental health condition in their lifetime. In any one year, around 1 million Australian adults have depression, and over 2 million have anxiety.” Beyond Blue Save this picture!© Tess KellyIt was the end of winter and I visited my doctor to discuss my increasing levels of anxiety and stress. Whilst discussing mental health, my doctor pointed out that he experiences a sharp spike in patients seeking help during the late-winter/early-spring months, maybe due to lack of sunlight and vitamin D. He asked me what my house was like. Dark, I said.Save this picture!Floor PlansMy-House is my home. It is also the office of Austin Maynard Architects. My family and I live upstairs, whilst Austin Maynard Architects occupies the shopfront downstairs. Save this picture!© Tess KellyAs part of my return to mental wellbeing I decided I would renovate my home. I would use my skill set to maximise my mental health. I was living in a dark terrace, and I decided that I didn’t just want to get more light. I decided to create the complete antithesis of the original terraces spaces. I aimed to create a dichotomous home. The original terrace remains with all of its problems and charms, yet the new extension is a bright, elaborate greenhouse. The terrace has high ceilings and small windows. The extension has a clear Thermoclick roof. A large glass wall opens the kitchen/dining area out onto the sun drenched garden. There is a box in the centre of the house that has a bathroom, kitchen and a utility area for Austin Maynard Architects. Above is an open platform, full of plants, that we lounge around on.Save this picture!DiagramMy-House is an experiment that I live in. It is a home that I dare not impose on my clients. It breaks many important rules, often not in a good way. My-House lets in sunlight where a house should not. Whilst it is a very sustainable home, My-House is not as thermally efficient as the homes I design for others. Issues of privacy and personal comfort are often challenged in My-House. It is for these reasons that my family and I also love it.Save this picture!© Tess KellyProject gallerySee allShow lessSeminargebäude ‘Erweiterung Süd’ / Simon Freie Architekten BDASelected ProjectsExpo 2016 Antalya Observation Tower / Nita ArchitectsSelected Projects Share 2016 My House – The Mental Health House / Austin Maynard Architects CopyHouses, Residential•Australia Photographs: Tess Kelly Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project “COPY” Australia My House – The Mental Health House / Austin Maynard ArchitectsSave this projectSaveMy House – The Mental Health House / Austin Maynard Architects Area: 167 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Save this picture!© Tess Kelly+ 32 Share Architects: Austin Maynard Architects Area Area of this architecture project Year: Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/873011/my-house-the-mental-health-house-austin-maynard-architects Clipboard Photographs ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/873011/my-house-the-mental-health-house-austin-maynard-architects Clipboard CopyAbout this officeAustin Maynard ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsAustraliaPublished on June 07, 2017Cite: “My House – The Mental Health House / Austin Maynard Architects” 06 Jun 2017.

Hats off to OU. I thought they were just tougher than us at the end.” Strong offensive help lead the Frogs to a first-set victory. Outside hitters élan McCall, Ashley Waggle and Julia Adams each had at least four kills in the set. The team came back from a 22-19 deficit, winning the final six points of the set.McCall would lead the team with five kills and seven digs in the opening set.Katie Clark dominated the offense in the second set with six kills on .750 hitting; however, the Sooners would go on a 5-1 run in the set to take a lead and eventually win the set 25-23.In the third set, another offensive run by the Sooners would lead to an OU win. Clark again led the team with four kills on 1.000 hitting, but it would not be enough to keep TCU afloat.The fourth set was the highest-scoring set in program history in the 25-point set era and the highest-scoring set overall since Sept. 30, 2006. The set saw 17 ties and 11 lead changes, but the Sooners would come out on top 36-34 to win the match.TCU fought off four match points with three kills from Afedo Manyang and two kills from Adams. McCall had seven digs and six kills in the final set. Adams also had six kills in the set.McCall finished the contest with 16 kills and 17 digs.“This is the way we’ve wanted to play all year long,” Kramer said. “I was really proud of our performance tonight. Would have liked to see the ball bounce a different way at the end, but I’m really proud of our team.

iStock(BERKELEY, Calif.) — Manholes will now be known as maintenance holes and craftsman will be replaced by artisan, after the Berkeley, California, City Council voted unanimously to revise the city’s municipal code with gender-neutral language.Dozens of terms will be revised and the pronouns “they” and “them” will replace “he” and “she,” according to the new ordinance.“In recent years, broadening societal awareness of transgender and gender nonconforming identities has brought to light the importance of non-binary gender inclusivity,” Rigel Robinson, a member of the council and a co-sponsor of the ordinance, said in a letter to the mayor and city council.The ordinance follows the city’s decision in February to allow city employees to add their preferred pronoun to their name badge.“There is power in language,” Robinson said. “This is a small move, but it matters.”Other changes include adjusting “sorority and fraternity” to “collegiate Greek residents.” Man-made will become human-made, while pregnant women will be referred to as pregnant employees.Lori Droste, another co-sponsor, addressed those who objected to the ordinance in a Twitter thread.“We are not legislating how people talk to us but our message is that we serve people regardless of their gender,” Droste said. “We are forgetting what government service is all about. We are here to help and serve and be inclusive. And yes, Berkeley is a beacon of light in some dark times.”Two other members of the council, Cheryl Davila and Ben Bartlett, also co-sponsored the ordinance.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailOKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell has a left foot bruise and his status is uncertain for Game 2 of the Western Conference playoff series against the Oklahoma City Thunder.Mitchell left Oklahoma City’s 116-108 win Game 1 on Sunday after stubbing his toe in the third quarter, and he played sporadically the rest of the way. A team spokesman said Mitchell had an MRI on Monday, and the team will provide a status update on Tuesday. When asked if he was concerned about missing Game 2 on Wednesday, Mitchell said, “Not at all.”“I can walk,” he said. “I think tomorrow will be the deciding factor, but I feel fine. I feel fine right now.”Mitchell is one of the league’s top rookies. He averaged 20.5 points, 3.7 rebounds and 3.7 assists during the regular season. He had 27 points and 10 rebounds in Game 1.Mitchell did not try to run on the foot on Monday, saying there was no need to. He said he expects to be able to help the Jazz bounce back.“We were stagnant,” he said. “The ball didn’t move as much as we had hoped or as we would like. We made those adjustments in practice just now.”Oklahoma City’s Carmelo Anthony and Russell Westbrook were asked about Mitchell after Sunday’s game. At one point, Anthony said he’d already answered one and he’d let Westbrook take the second. Westbrook deflected it.“We just came out and competed,” Westbrook said. “Both teams played hard.”As for the actual game, Mitchell said Westbrook was focused defensively and Thunder guard Corey Brewer was a better defensive player than he thought. He said being exposed to the environment should pay off on Wednesday.“Now that we’ve got the first game under our belt — some of us haven’t played in the playoffs — we know the atmosphere, we know how loud it’s going to be in here,” he said. “I think coming out the second game, we’ll be more poised and more calm.” April 16, 2018 /Sports News – Local Jazz G Mitchell has left foot bruise, uncertain for Game 2 Associated Press Tags: Basketball/Donovan Mitchell/NBA/Playoffs/Utah Jazz Written by

Cobra Gold is the largest Theater Security Cooperation exercise in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region and is an integral part of the U.S. commitment to strengthen engagement in the region.“Training with America’s allies and partner nations makes us all better prepared and more responsive should a contingency occur,” said Capt. Nathan Moyer, Green Bay’s commanding officer. “We look forward to demonstrating the capabilities of this awesome blue-green team as we work at sea and ashore during Cobra Gold and throughout our time on patrol.” During the visit, the Green Bay crew will participate in a community service project and will also enjoy multiple Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) tours in order to experience the diverse Thai culture.“This will be my first time visiting Thailand and I could not be more excited,” said Marine Cpl.

An increasing number of cash-strapped students are turning to escorting as a way to earn money, Cherwell can reveal.“I currently have three Oxford students on my books and have had many more previously. They come and go, whether to help finance their studies or just for the love of the money,” the manager of an escorting agency disclosed. Contacting several escorting agencies based in Oxford under the alias “Kate Selby”, Cherwell found that escorts can be paid as much as £180 for a two hour booking, or up to £650 for an overnight booking.A student in Oxford who escorts in her spare time said, “the thrill of earning money easily motivates me. 90% of the clients are very respectful and very nice guys. Most of the guys are in town on business staying at hotels”.It remains unclear exactly what it is that the clients are paying for when they hire escorts. Some websites for escort agencies based in Oxford emphasise that the money paid by the client is not for sex, but rather for their escorts’ time.One agency website explains, “[We] do not offer any illegal or immoral services. Any money paid is for time and companionship only and anything else that may occur is a personal matter between consenting adults.”However when the manager of the same agency was asked whether working as an escort involved having sex with the clients, she replied that, “Yes sex is part of escorting.Many students were not surprised to learn that escorting was an option some of their peers turn to. Finola Holyoak, a second year Lincoln student, said, “There is no reason why Oxford students should be any less likely to escort than students at other universities.” A survey conducted earlier this year revealed that one in three female university students would be willing to work in a gentleman’s club in order to fund their degree and lifestyle. With 61% of female students saying they have felt “desperate” for money whilst studying, the survey showed that many women are turning to stripping and escorting in an attempt to find ways to financially support themselves.One female third-year student, who wished to remain anonymous, said that she was considering working as an escort if her financial situation worsened. Commenting on students using escorting as source of income, a spokesperson for the University said, “Most students are adults and therefore responsible for their own behaviour. With regards to any form of employment, students are discouraged from working during term time as terms are short.”He added that the university expects students “to behave responsibly and to avoid bringing the university into disrepute or being a nuisance to the local community”.However, for many the financial benefits do not justify the wider social implications of the escorting industry.One second-year English student said, “I think that regardless of the money you can make, services such as escorting still encourage an unhealthy towards sex and distort student attitudes towards relationships. It must be very destructive psychologically for young women”.
