Although a 100% public housing scheme, thanks to the diversity of its program the Savonnerie Heymans provides a variety of spaces echoing the diversity of the people living in the very heart of Brussels.

All the existing valuable – but not listed – historic buildings and elements such as the chimney, the main 19th century house on the street and the postal relay were retained and integrated into the complex (the 40m high chimney, for example, was used as part of the underground garage ventilation system).Save this picture!© Filip DujardinThe glass-enclosed bioclimatic loggias provide each housing unit with a state-of-the-art acoustical and thermal barrier requiring no expensive/complicated services to run and lowering considerably energy consumption. The Loft building has been treated one step further as thanks to super-tight insulation, the building is now considerate “Passive” and requires less than 15 Kw per square metre per year to heat. Located on the site of a former soap factory, the decontaminated land now welcomes a high-density social housing complex that provides a series of private outdoor spaces allowing its occupants to interact easily with each other and creating a convivial, village-like atmosphere.Save this picture!The variety of buildings – new, renovated and refurbished – reflects the variety of accommodations offered in the Savonnerie Heymans project. The scheme was intentionally developed around the concepts of sustainable development and relies on low-serviced buildings.

They also allow sharing the variety of arrangements of the semi outdoor space of each individual unit.Save this picture!© Filip DujardinThe Lofts is a passive building while the rest of the complex is low-energy rated. Beside the bioclimatic loggias, the scheme also features a collective heating system for the entire site (cogeneration), sanitary hot water heated by 60m² of solar panels, rainwater harvesting for toilets, maintenance and gardens and natural materials for insulation (hemp fibres, expanded cork etc.).

Why Mike Pence is Running for VP

first_imgHome Commentary Why Mike Pence is Running for VP In a move that surprised most political observers, Presumptive GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump has picked Indiana Governor Mike Pence as his running mate. In a move that stunned many Hoosiers and even some of Mike’s close friends, he said yes to the offer. This turn of events has a lot to do with political strategy, but there is an underlying cause that most big city media are missing. Trump’s choice of Pence and Pence’s decision to join a ticket he has criticized and did not support in the primary have a lot do with faith, farming, and rural values.Governor Pence is being portrayed in the national media as an extreme conservative, a homophobic religious nutcase, and just not very smart. The New York Times called Pence out of touch with today, “He is a throwback in his demeanor. With his deep social conservatism, public religiosity, and aversion to negative campaigning, he is a throwback in his political style.”  Being out of touch with the New York Times is probably a badge Mike would wear with pride.  The fact is, most of the pundits and reporters that are casting judgements about Mr. Pence have never seen him standing in a field with farmers, talking with small town folks at a local restaurant, or giddy with excitement when surrounded by a group of high school students in blue and gold FFA jackets.While Governor Pence is a career politician who seeks the glare of the national spotlight, his values and approach to politics come from his rural Hoosier roots.  While not a farmer, he understands and values agriculture. Though he has come a long way from his Southern Indiana upbringing, he has not lost an understanding of small town people. It is for this ability to connect with voters outside of New York, L.A. and Chicago that Donald Trump, a billionaire from Manhattan, picked Pence as the running mate.Often viewed by Eastern liberals as fly over states, this November the votes in the Midwest and South will hold the key to who wins the White House. The fact that former Iowa Governor and current Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack is on Hillary Clinton’s short list for VP choices shows how vital the Midwest is. So while Pence is good for Trump, is being on the Trump ticket good for Pence?Those of us who have known Mike both personally and professionally are not too surprised by this decision to join the ticket. Mr. Pence has always had the White House in mind but was realistic enough to understand that a conservative from Indiana, who does not come from a rich family has little chance of raising the kind of money and organization it takes to win a national primary contest.  By taking a shot at Vice President, he gets to a place he could otherwise not accomplish.  But, there is much more than political expediency at work here.Mike Pence personally believes in America and in the values of hard work, self-reliance, financial responsibility, family, faith, and freedom from burdensome oversight and regulations.  He wants to work to restore what he sees as a deterioration in our society of many of these values. Mike is also a genuine individual. He does not act one way in front of the camera and another way off. He is very much a people person. Part of his motivation for running for Vice President is a desire to help people.  While that may be hokey in New York, it is understood, valued, and appreciated in rural America.What many of us in agriculture are excited about is that, for the first time since Harry Truman, we may have a Vice President who understands agriculture.  From trade to renewable energy to the importance of transportation infrastructure, Mike Pence gets it and will not be shy about raising the issues on the campaign and perhaps in the oval office.  Mike Pence is subjecting himself to the rigors of this campaign because he believes he can improve things, and that includes improving things in agriculture and rural America.By Gary Truitt Previous articleHouse Passes EPA Spending Bill Despite White House Veto ThreatNext articleMorning Outlook Gary Truitt SHARE Why Mike Pence is Running for VP Facebook Twitter SHARE By Gary Truitt – Jul 18, 2016 Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

first_img Sen. Stabenow: Slow Down in Ratifying USMCA, Same as NAFTA for Ag Home Indiana Agriculture News Sen. Stabenow: Slow Down in Ratifying USMCA, Same as NAFTA for Ag Facebook Twitter Sen. Stabenow: Slow Down in Ratifying USMCA, Same as NAFTA for Ag2019 is quickly coming to an end with no guarantee if USMCA will be passed. Some lawmakers are suggesting keeping the House in session an extra week to finish business before Christmas. Earlier this year, Sec. Perdue said the idea of not passing USMCA is “an evil thought.”However, Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.), ranking member of the Senate Ag Committee, recognizes the support and energy behind passing USMCA, but she suggested pumping the breaks on passing the trilateral agreement.“I’m not sure what will happen, when it will pass, but we need to step back and realize it’s just about the same as NAFTA for agriculture,” said Stabenow. “It’s estimated by the U.S. International Trade Commission that the agreement will only increase ag exports by 1.1 percent when it’s fully implemented 15 years down the road.”Leaders from various agricultural organizations, former secretaries of agriculture, lawmakers, Vice President Mike Pence, and organizations outside of agriculture have all pushed for the passage of USMCA, including former Reagan administration USDA Secretary John Block.“NAFTA was good, but this is much better,” he said at a press conference earlier this year. “USMCA is better—we all know it’s better. It’s better for the farmers, it’s also better for labor, better for business. It’s a great agreement. Get it done and move onto the next.”Stabenow said nothing President Trump is doing with tariffs is stopped by USMCA. She says uncertainty in the markets has stemmed from tariffs, trade wars, and efforts within the Trump administration.“Passing USMCA is not going to change the erratic actions of the administration in terms of tariffs and what’s been going on,” she said. “I wish passing USMCA would bring certainty in agriculture.”Last week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that a labor deal in USMCA is “imminent.” Facebook Twitter By Ashley Davenport – Nov 21, 2019 SHARE SHARE Previous articlePOET Says Closing Cloverdale Plant ‘Last Thing We Want to Do’ on the HAT Thursday Morning EditionNext articleUSDA Invests in the Expansion of Rural Education, Health Care Access Ashley Davenportlast_img read more

Texas GOP retirements increase as state slowly becomes more competitive

first_imgFacebook Benton McDonaldhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/benton-mcdonald/ Linkedin Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature Chancellor talks stimulus money, COVID-19 vaccines and more at limited attendance faculty town hall Linkedin Twitter ReddIt printFive Republican U.S. Representative from Texas are retiring- the latest sign of the state’s changing political landscape. The announcements come in advance of the Dec. 1 deadline for candidates to officially file for re-election. The retirements included Rep. Will Hurd, the only black Republican in the House of Representatives, and Rep. Mike Conaway, the ranking member of the House Agriculture Committee. “My sense is that Republican incumbents looking forward to 2020 see another difficult year and some of them have decided they would prefer not to fight it out,” SMU political science professor Cal Jillson said. The difficulties stem from two places according to Jillson: The changing demographics of Texas’ electorate and the Trump administration. Texas is gradually becoming less white. A 2018 survey by the United States Census Bureau reported the state as 42.9% white and 38.9% Hispanic or Latino. Those numbers were at 52% and 32% when the 2000 census was recorded, respectively. The shift towards a more diverse electorate should favor Democrats, who have historically maintained majorites with non-white racial groups. This majority will be strengthened if the Hispanic turnout continues at the levels seen during the 2018 midterms. The group’s 13% jump in voter turnout was the largest of any racial group when compared to 2014.Texas’ 23rd district, which stretches across the state’s southwestern portion, is over 70% Hispanic. Democratic candidate Gina Ortiz Jones, who lost to Hurd in 2018 and is running for the now-open seat in 2020, focused on not taking Hispanic voters for granted. “One of the reasons that we were successful in turning votes out is because we aren’t making assumptions about communities,” she said. “You’ve gotta show up in each of these communities.”Ortiz Jones (left) focused her 2018 campaign on engaging with every community in her district. Photo Courtesy: @GinaOrtizJones – TwitterJones’ comments echoed a similar sentiment from Janet Hernandez, a civic engagement director at UnidosUS, America’s largest Latino nonprofit advocacy organization. “I think that candidates need to do more,” Hernandez said. “Candidates need to do more to really go and knock on the doors of Latino households and ask people for their votes and not take the Latino community for granted.”Continuing to engage the Hispanic electorate will be at the top of the priority list again for Texas Democrats in 2020. Hernadez said that Unidos registered nearly 10,000 new Texas voters during the last election cycle, primarily in areas along the border. “If the Hispanic turnout continues to increase and their population increases while the Angelo population declines as a percent of all voters, that will bring two-party competition,” Jillson said. The Trump effectWhile Texas’ demographic changes will still take decades to fully change the states political leanings, the Trump administration is causing an accelerated change — one that is already being felt by politicians. “The shorter-term disruption is Donald Trump and his alienation of some elements of the traditional Republican primary electorate, particularly white well-educated suburban women and some of their husbands,” Jillson said. Jillson pointed to the defeat of Republican Pete Sessions in 2018 as one example of the “destabilizing effect” the Trump administration is causing on the GOP.Sessions had represented Texas’ 32nd district since 1997. He won by 26 percentage points in 2014 and had no Democratic opponent in 2016. His former district covers the northern suburbs of Dallas and was won by Mitt Romney in 2012 before flipping to Hillary Clinton in 2016. Its shift left continued in 2018 when Democrat and former NFL player Colin Allred defeated Sessions. It was Allred’s first time running for elected office. He made significant gains in the University and Highland Park neighborhoods that played a large role in his surprise victory. Allred’s gains (left) in the wealthier suburbs of his district in 2018 helped him defeat the incumbent Pete Sessions. Maps courtesy: Dallas County The area is a representation of the wealthy, white electorate that has long been key to Republican victories, Jillson said. “You can’t lose suburban, college-educated women in households of $100,000 to $150,000,” he said. “Those people have to vote Republican or you’re in trouble.” One way for Republicans to bring back the suburban vote and attract Hispanic voters is to moderate their social positions, Jillson said. “They’ve got to win them back and the only way to really do that is to, you know, you can’t have kids in cages on the border, you can’t be opposed to all gun control,” he said. “Those kinds of things are traditional Republican positions when the Republicans were winning 58-42.”Some GOP candidates in districts with narrowing margins may have to change their strategy to maintain the parties firm grip on Texas in 2020, Jillson added. But some are opting to retire instead. Four of the five retiring representatives faced the most competitive races of their tenure in 2018. Hurd defeated Ortiz Jones by less than 1% in 2016, part of the reason why she thinks he decided to retire from Congress at the age of 42. “Good on him for accepting defeat early,” she said. “I think the writing was on the wall and that clearly had to factor into his decision and the others that have decided to not run again and I don’t think we’ve seen the last of it.”The three other retiring Congressmen, Reps. Kenny Marchant, Bill Flores and Pete Olson won by less than 10 percentage points after double-digit victories in 2016. Even if their seats are held by the GOP, all eyes will be on Texas in 2020 as the state continues to evolve amid changing demographics and social trends.  Benton McDonaldhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/benton-mcdonald/ Settlement reached between TCU, former professor in discrimination lawsuit ReddIt Thousands of TCU community members receive COVID-19 vaccines as university supply increases + posts Benton McDonald Facebook Rep.

PYC Therapeutics Highlights Progress in Its Transformation to a U.S. Clinical-Stage Company and 2021…

first_img Pinterest PERTH, Australia and NEW YORK, Feb. 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — PYC Therapeutics (ASX: PYC), a biotechnology company developing a new generation of precision RNA therapeutics to change the lives of patients with inherited diseases, today announced updates to its programs and outlined its 2021-2022 corporate objectives. PYC is initially targeting inherited ocular diseases, for which it has three preclinical candidates in development. “This year we are focused on transforming PYC Therapeutics into a U.S.-based, clinical-stage biotechnology company, including making significant advances in moving our three preclinical inherited ocular disease programs toward the clinic and leveraging our RNA platform to create new development candidates in both ocular and neurodegenerative diseases,” said Sahm Nasseri, U.S. Chief Executive Officer of PYC Therapeutics. “We have previously highlighted the importance of building out PYC in the U.S. and I am pleased with our progress and external engagements we have been able to have over the last few months. These engagements with banks, potential future investors as well as potential partners have validated the importance and relevance of PYC’s technology as well as our choice in initial drug development programs. RNA therapeutics and ophthalmology remain top areas of interest in the very active US biotech capital markets. On this foundation, I believe we are very well positioned to deliver on the promise of our science to advance RNA medicines that have the potential to change the lives of patients with inherited diseases.” 2021 Objectives and Program Updates Corporate Initiatives: In late 2020, PYC began its transformation from an Australia-based, discovery-focused organization into a U.S.-based, clinical-stage biotechnology company that is well positioned to deliver on several key milestones during 2021. Expand U.S. Management Team. Last year, PYC appointed Sahm Nasseri as U.S. Chief Executive Officer and world-renowned RNA therapeutics pioneer Sue Fletcher, PhD as Chief Scientific Officer. The Company’s Chief Business Officer, Kaggen Ausma has relocated from Australia to the U.S. to lead PYC’s business and corporate development growth initiatives. In the first half of 2021, PYC expects to name several new leadership team members, including a Chief Development Officer and a Chief Financial Officer, and appointment of U.S. based and industry experienced Directors. The talent, capability and credibility these appointments will bring to PYC will be critical enablers of the Company’s continuing transformation. Expand U.S. Development Capabilities and Access to Capital Markets. PYC plans to maintain its drug discovery and laboratory operations in Australia and will be building its preclinical and clinical development, manufacturing, regulatory and business development functions in the U.S. In parallel, the Company intends to undertake important corporate and business development activities in the U.S in 2021 and has been engaging with U.S biotech institutional investors and potential biotech and pharmaceutical partners to lay the foundation for these initiatives. In the next six months, the Company plans to establish a West Coast location for its U.S. corporate headquarters. Strong Cash Position to Support U.S. Expansion and Growth. PYC ended 2020 with $44 million (USD) in cash and cash equivalents. Based on its current operating plans, and considering the Australian R&D tax rebate, this provides the Company with a multi-year cash runway enabling a very strong foundation for execution of both Corporate and Program objectives. Inherited Ocular Diseases: These programs aim to employ PYC’s proprietary cell penetrating peptides (CPPs) to deliver rationally designed RNA therapeutics into retinal cells to treat diseases caused by a specific gene mutation or a missing or defective protein. VP-001 for the treatment of retinitis pigmentosa type 11 (RP11). RP11 is an inherited retinal degenerative disease that causes progressive loss of vision and often leads to blindness in both adults and children. There are currently no disease-modifying therapies available for RP11. PYC’s lead development candidate VP-001 is designed to deliver its therapeutic RNA cargo directly into the nuclei of retinal cells, with the goal of upregulating PRPF31 gene expression and reversing the progressive retinal degeneration and eventual blindness caused by RP11. PYC’s preclinical research to date has demonstrated VP-001’s ability to upregulate PRPF31, correct key structural deficiencies, and improve phagocytosis and cilia incidence and length in retinal pigmented epithelial cells. These results have all been achieved in patient-derived models and with minimal evidence of toxicity. PYC has advanced VP-001 into Investigational New Drug (IND)-enabling studies and expects to report results from important large animal toxicity studies in the middle of 2021, with the goal of submitting an IND to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) during the first half of 2022. VP-002 for the treatment of autosomal dominant optic atrophy (ADOA). ADOA is an inherited optic nerve disorder caused by mutations in the OPA1 gene that cause vision loss in both children and adults and can lead to blindness. There is currently no approved therapy for ADOA. VP-002 is designed to deliver its therapeutic RNA cargo and correct the protein deficiency in retinal cells caused by the OPA1 mutation which results in ADOA. PYC is currently conducting lead optimization work with VP-002 and expects to report results from patient-derived models in the first half of 2021 with additional efficacy and safety data across the balance of 2021. PYC-001 for the treatment of diabetic retinopathy (DR). DR is a complication of diabetes where high blood sugar damages blood vessels in the retinal tissue, resulting in vision loss and potentially blindness for more than 40 million people globally1. The current standard of care is anti-VEGF therapy which is not optimal due to lack of response and/or durability of response, along with emerging evidence that prolonged use leads to retinal damage. PYC-001 delivers a PYC-designed modified anti-VEGF RNA cargo that halts the destruction of the retinal blood vessels. PYC is currently conducting lead optimization work with PYC-001 and expects to report results from patient-derived and in vivo models throughout 2021. Additional undisclosed ocular candidates. PYC is cultivating a rich pipeline of novel development candidates to address additional ocular diseases. The Company expects to unveil additional development candidates for the treatment of high unmet need ocular indications during 2021. Central Nervous System (CNS) Diseases: These programs aim to employ PYC’s proprietary CPPs to deliver rationally designed RNA therapeutics to treat neurodegenerative diseases. Undisclosed CNS candidate. Neurodegenerative diseases represent a significant unmet need, and PYC’s CPP-PMO (phosphorodiamidate morpholino oligomer) technology is uniquely placed to intervene meaningfully in the RNA dysregulation which characterizes many of these disease processes. PYC expects to name one CNS development candidate targeting a high unmet need neurodegenerative condition during the first half of 2021. Mr. Nasseri continued: “This is a truly exciting and transformational time for PYC, as we build upon the extensive foundation laid in 2020. Our pioneering research team led by Prof. Fletcher is rapidly validating our unique approach to correcting inherited retinal diseases, while also exploring the area of neurodegenerative diseases. With the capital to support our pipeline goals and recruit top talent in the U.S., along with the strong U.S. market potential of our candidate therapies, we believe we are well positioned to enable significant value inflections in 2021 and 2022.” About PYC Therapeutics PYC Therapeutics (ASX: PYC) is a development-stage biotechnology company pioneering a new generation of RNA therapeutics that utilize Cell Penetrating Peptides (CPPs), a revolutionary delivery technology designed to overcome the major challenges of current gene-based therapies. PYC believes its CPP technology provides safer, more effective access for a wide range of potent and precise drug cargoes to the highest value drug targets that exist inside cells. The Company is leveraging its leading-edge science to develop a pipeline of novel therapies with an initial focus on inherited eye diseases for which it has unveiled three preclinical stage assets. PYC’s discovery and laboratory operations are located in Australia and the Company recently launched and expansion into the U.S. for its preclinical, clinical, regulatory and business development operations.
