    Chip Design Teams And Restaurant Kitchen Staff Have A Lot In Common

    Believe it or not, electronic device and systems-design teams have a lot in common with kitchen staff in big commercial restaurants: They both leverage many different tools and resources to churn out great products in a high-pressure environment to a demanding audience that wants it now, not tomorrow. Unfortunately, design teams are often not nearly as well equipped to complete their projects as kitchen staff are. In a well-run kitchen, the staff knows exactly where every knife, fork, pot, pan, ingredient, and appliance are, and they know what shape it’s in. In design engineering, it’s not often that orderly. This challenge has increased in recent years, as the use of…

    Home design to drive energy bills down –

    New sustainability standards for homes will save residents up to $980 a year on energy bills and reduce the State’s carbon footprint as we move to net-zero emissions by 2050.   The Building Sustainability Index (BASIX) is a key assessment tool that ensures new homes are comfortable to live in regardless of the temperature, are more energy efficient and save water.   Minister for Planning and Public Spaces Rob Stokes said BASIX had prevented 12.3 million tonnes of greenhouse gas over the past 17 years – equivalent to taking 2.5 million cars off the road.   “These proposed increases in standards will see more energy-efficient homes from Double Bay to…

    Japanese gardens bring the outside in

    Japanese-style gardens first caught the public imagination in the U.S. at an 1893 world exposition in Chicago, became a sought-after feature in Gilded Age estates and were later adapted to open-plan modernist homes. Today, they have evolved and continue to inspire garden design at a time when many people are trying to forge a closer connection between indoor and outdoor spaces. “One reason that gardens are so successful in Japan is that the house-garden relationship is set up to be so integrated. There are large views of the garden, and more unobstructed views. Gardens are enclosed and surround the house, so it’s as if your living space extends out much…

    Luxury real estate booming on Upper East Side in NYC

    The once sedate Upper East Side is suddenly sizzling as luxe home sales are surging after being cratered by the pandemic.

    Corpus Christi’s Bill Witt Park on Southside is getting swimming pool

    Editor’s note: This story has been updated to reflect that the design of the proposed pool at Bill Witt Park is slated to be finished in late 2022. A previous version of this story stated an incorrect project timeline.  Corpus Christi’s District 5, known as the Southside, doesn’t have a public pool to serve the community.  That is slated to change in the coming years. The city has been working to construct a pool at Bill Witt Park, a city park located off Yorktown Boulevard, since it started planning its 2020 bond program.  Fall 2020, voters approved the City of Corpus Christi’s Bond 2020 Program of $75 million allocated for 42 projects. Roughly $1 million…
