The 1000 m2 land for Anna and Saeed Villa project that was proposed to us in September 2012 is in Zaitoon town, 10 km from the historical city of Isfahan in Iran. Zaitoon town is a small residential-villa complex with a highly dense villa texture, which mainly belong to physicians.Save this picture!© Parham TaghioffHere, attempts were made to form the building like a tree that one may climb it. It was realized through designing open spaces – as the main basis for formation collective behaviors – implementing it at different levels, and defining accesses and connection spaces like clamping rings and dynamic game spaces.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThis way, an entangled network of open spaces, sunken garden, central courtyard and terrace is formed, which can be used for various individual and collective behaviors instead of individual single-spaces. Outdoor space is used in a live and 3D connection with indoor space.Save this picture!© Farshid NasrabadiForming around open spaces, struck volumes encompass open spaces. While respecting introversion and privacy, the struck volumes maximize connection of close, open, and semi-open spaces. All close spaces of the project face the middle gap through which communicate outdoor space. This is how they revive pattern of familiar Iranian architecture (central courtyard, terrace and sunken garden).Save this picture!© Parham TaghioffFoundation of the project is about 420 m2 in three stories.

So how do we go about reaching consumers with these messages? The CFI study showed that each consumer group turned to different sources to get information. The web, however, was a consistent top source of information. Generally Friends and family ranked second with local television news a strong third. Yet one factor that rated highly among almost all of the groups identified was FDA approval. by Gary Truitt The USFRA study also looked at a key factor that seemingly most store managers have forgotten, “When it comes to purchasing groceries, Americans prioritize cost (47 percent), quality (43 percent) and healthiness/nutrition (21 percent).” Why don’t se we have signs and labels dealing with these issues? Perhaps a sign over the sugar cereals that reads, These are over prices products with very little nutritional value, or in the bottled water section a sign that reads, the price markup on this city tab water is 200%. Now those are signs that really deal with the actual concerns of shoppers. The latest consumer attitude research from the Center for Feed Integrity (CFI) reveals some surprising results, consumers have a good deal of confidence in the food they eat and trust government agencies to protect them. The research shows a market upturn in positive attitudes about GMO food products and significant percentages have positive attitudes toward the use of antibiotics in livestock production. The study also showed that when educated about confined livestock production most consumers had a positive response to the use of confinement animal production. Unfortunately this is information you will not see on the front page of the New York Times, or as top story on ABC Network news. Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter For most people involved in livestock production this may seem like stating the obvious but keep in mind most consumers do not connect the dots between the meat case and farm. Likewise when it was explained to consumers that the use of hormones in livestock production meant less land had to be used, that the practice had been going on for over 50 years with no proven problems, and that the FDA has approved the practice, there was a significant improvement in attitudes. Attitudes on antibiotic use also improved when it was explained that farmers must abide to strict withdrawal procedures before sending the animals to slaughter and that the FDA regulated the process, opinions became more positive. While it may seem simplistic, I feel we could make a lot of headway with consumers by putting a large and official looking label on most of our food products that read something like; This product produced and processed with methods and materials regulated and approved by the FDA and/or USDA. Perhaps we could also put a web address or QR code that would take consumers to a web site that would explain the technology being used by agriculture today is improving the food we eat while protecting the environment we all share. Home Commentary Consumer Confidence in Their Food is Higher than You Might Think Since 2007 CFI has been conducting rigorous, sophisticated and comprehensive consumer attitude studies. These studies tract shifts in consumer attitudes and provide strategies on the best way to craft messages to reach and inform consumers about key food issues. According to CFI, “The 2012 Consumer Trust in the Food System research focuses on consumer Values-Orientations, or an individual’s view of society that influences the perception of self and others. If consumers believe today’s food production practices are aligned with what they believe those in the food system should do then they are more likely to trust those practices.” Some of the classifications identified in the study were: the traditionalist- someone who has a very traditional view of how food should be produced, the fatalist- someone who feels they have no control over food production, quality, or price, and the collectivist, who trusts government agencies to protect them on food issues. While each group had slightly different attitudes on food issues all responded positively when provided education about the issue in question. For example when it was explained that raising animals in confined housing protected them from predators, inclement weather conditions, and disease, their attitudes toward confined animal feeding improved. The CFI study confirms that a study by the US Farmers and Ranchers Alliance. According to the survey, 53 percent of Americans believe food production is heading in the right direction – an increase from the 48 percent who believed the same in a benchmark 2011 USFRA survey. Yet the survey reveals a gap between how Americans feel about their food and what they really know about their food. More than one in four Americans (27 percent) admit they often are confused about the food they are purchasing. Nearly two-thirds (65 percent) do not believe that 95 percent of all U.S. farms are in fact family-owned1. While two-thirds of Americans (66 percent) correctly believe that pesticide use decreased from 956 million pounds in 1999 to 877 million pounds in 20072. Consumer Confidence in Their Food is Higher than You Might Think While the research shows that we are making progress with consumers on how and why their food is produced the way it is, it also shows we have a long way to go. Yet from this research the food and agriculture industry can learn more effective way of communicating with consumers and boosting their confidence in the nation’s food supply. By Gary Truitt – Nov 25, 2012 SHARE To walk through a modern supermarket you will see signs and labels that would give you the impression that today’s shoppers and very worried about a variety of issues related to how their food is produced and processed. You are likely to see a sign over the dairy case stating that the milk has no hormones. You might see a label on a box of cereal that says GMO free. There could be a sign over the pork section of the meat case that says not raised in gestation stalls, or a sign over the beef section telling shoppers there was no antibiotics used. The problem is according to the research the majority of consumers are not worried about most of these issues. Pressure and propaganda from radical activist groups has scared skittish retailers and food processors into putting out these warnings.

Nomura and the Royal Bank of Scotland, also a defendant in the case, are the first two financial institutions out of 18 sued by the FHFA in 2011 that failed to reach a settlement and took the case to trial. FHFA sued the 18 institutions to recoup U.S. taxpayer costs following the government’s $188 billion bailout of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in 2008, after which the government seized control of both Enterprises.In the closing arguments, Nomura’s lawyer said that the losses incurred by the FHFA were due to macroeconomic factors and not false or misleading statements by the banks, saying the FHFA used “voodoo science” to evaluate the securities. A lawyer representing the FHFA pointed to widespread misrepresentation of the quality of mortgage-backed securities on the part of banks leading up to the economic downturn and accused the banks of “deceit” and “colossal incompetence.”The U.S. Department of Treasury’s Director of Marketing and Outreach in the Homeownership Preservation Office, Carol Lambert, has announced that she will no longer work in that capacity effective Friday, April 10, and instead is moving to another position within Treasury. Lambert was instrumental in starting Treasury’s Making Home Affordable Program in 2009, which the government began in response to the devastating financial crisis of 2008 and to help families avoid foreclosure. She has continued to promote the program for the last six years, during which time MHA has helped more than one and a half million families.

The following queries were made before the External Affairs Ministry by Dr. Sanjeev Goel. As the ministry refused to answer his queries, he had approached the CIC in appeal. How many passports have been issued by any Government in the world to Mr. Rahul Gandhi or alias, if any, bearing photograph of Mr. Rahul Gandhi, Member of Parliament, Lok Sabha, India? If more than one passport has been issued bearing his photograph, address and details of all passports be provided. What was his religion at the time of birth? What is his religion by virtue of his faith at present?” The appellant contended that he has a right to know the religion of Rahul Gandhi who is a public figure and considering the public interest in the matter, the information pertaining to his passport details and religion should be disclosed to him, as no exemption is applicable in this case. The ministry contended that disclosure of the information sought would cause unwarranted invasion of the third party’s privacy and no any larger public interest is involved in the matterThe Commissioner Neeraj Kumar Gupta, referred to various Supreme Court and High Court judgments on the scope of the provisions of Section 8(1)(j) of the Right To Information Act. Section 8 provides that information which relates to personal information the disclosure of which has not relationship to any public activity or interest, or which would cause unwarranted invasion of the privacy of the individual unless the Central Public Information Officer or the State Public Information Officer or the appellate authority, as the case may be, is satisfied that the larger public interest justifies the disclosure of such information The contentions put forth by the appellant with regards to ‘public interest’ element on the premise of Mr. Rahul Gandhi being a public figure does not stand a chance for disclosure of his personal information such as religion and passport details. Furthermore, the appellant has also failed to substantiate that the information sought is in line with the proviso appended to Section 8(1)(j) of the RTI Act, 2005. Hence, in the absence of any larger public interest in the matter, this Commission comes to a conclusion that the information sought by the appellant qualifies to be the ‘personal information’ of third party which is exempted under Section 8(1)(j) of the RTI Act, 2005 and therefore, it cannot be provided to the appellant.
