Press release: Highways England releases first sections of updated road design manual

first_imgHighways England today paved the way for improved road building with the much anticipated release of the first suite of new design standards.The publication of the first sections of the new ‘Design Manual for Roads and Bridges’ (DMRB) will ensure roads are designed, built and maintained to the very highest and safest standards.Accepted as the cornerstone of the delivery and management of motorway and all-purpose trunk roads across the UK, and a respected document worldwide, the DMRB was first published in 1992.Highways England, the Government company responsible for maintaining, operating and improving the country’s motorways and major A roads, is currently updating it to make it clearer, more consistent and easier to understand and implement. The update puts design requirements at its core and it will also make it easier to incorporate developments in design best practice. This will result in greater efficiency and innovation throughout the lifecycle of the assets, fewer departures from the requirements, and reduced time and associated cost.Highways England Chief Highway Engineer, Mike Wilson said:“This is an exciting time for the highways sector as we continue to successfully deliver the record £15bn investment in roads. The updated DMRB documents mark a historic moment for the design of the UK’s motorways and major A-roads.“I would like to thank the Devolved Administrations and our supply chain who have supported this significant review, which will ensure our roads are designed, built and maintained to the very highest, safest standards for the millions of drivers that use these roads every day.” Several leading UK consultants have supported Highways England with the update, and a new set of drafting rules has been used, which follows best practice from national and international standardisation organisations.The updated DMRB supports Highways England’s “The road to good design” vision.The DMRB re-drafting is being completed using a revolutionary online authoring tool purposefully built for the refresh of the document. This signals an important move to digital technology and unlocks the potential of digital innovations.The updated DMRB documents will be released in phases with completion due by March 2020.General enquiriesMembers of the public should contact the Highways England customer contact centre on 0300 123 5000.Media enquiriesJournalists should contact the Highways England press office on 0844 693 1448 and use the menu to speak to the most appropriate press officer.

This is a specific requirement of the Protocol attached to the Highways England Licence as part of the Government’s Road Investment Strategy.Changes in the updated document include:center_img a new structure of the volumes to be aligned to asset life-cycle stages, from appraisal to design up to disposal new numbering systems of documents reflecting the relevant asset life-cycle stage and the specific discipline covered by the document new style of individual clauses to make a clear distinction between requirements and advisory material incorporation of interim advice notes (IANs) into the DMRB as relevant consolidation of DMRB ‘A’ (advisory) documents with related ‘D’ (design) documents introduction of National Application Annexes attached to the DMRB to cover the specific requirements of the Overseeing Organisations Introduction to the Design Manual for Roads and Bridges Requirements for safety risk assessment Use of Compressive Membrane Action in Bridge Decks Management of Corrugated Steel Buried Structureslast_img read more

De Nora forms new marine business to drive growth plans

first_imgDe Nora, an Italian provider of energy-saving products and water treatment solutions, is creating a new legal entity, De Nora Marine Technologies LLC. “While the initial development of our marine business benefitted greatly from being part of a larger organization, it has entered a significant growth phase and is able to stand on its own,” Matt Granitto said. Already an established player in the delivery of ballast water treatment systems (BWTS) for the global maritime market, De Nora said it will use the new entity to deliver global business growth. This will be facilitated via acquisitions and organically through sales of its Balpure BWTS and other soon-to-be launched advanced water treatment technologies. De Nora Marine Technologies will be headquartered at De Nora’s facility in Sugarland Texas, USA, and headed up by General Manager Matt Granitto, with existing project teams and global operational bases continuing to operate under the new entity. Launched on 1 April 2020, the new company will facilitate De Nora’s global growth strategy within the maritime market, offering products and industry expertise to address growing calls for advanced water treatment technologies, in line with increasingly stringent environmental regulations, according to the company.center_img As demand for high-quality water treatment technologies grows exponentially, the new streamlined entity aims to offer customers products, developed and managed by a team with “the unique insight” necessary to simplify the normally complex process of water treatment technology purchasing decisions.  The formation of the De Nora Marine Technologies LLC comes at a critical time for the shipping industry when owners and operators face “a plethora of important investment decisions” regarding compliance with new environmental regulations, this includes the Ballast Water Management Convention (BWMC) and the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL). “Through standing on its own, De Nora Marine Technologies is able to understand and better adapt to the unique needs of the maritime community, at a critical time when owners and operators are under intense scrutiny to increase their environmental performance.”last_img read more

From Sketch to Souvenir: the artist behind Hidden Creatures

first_img SharePrint RelatedInside Geocaching HQ Podcast Transcript (Episode 2): Souvenirs, APE cache rediscoveryMay 10, 2018In “Community”An Achiever’s Reflection on the 7 Souvenirs of AugustAugust 27, 2014In “7 Souvenirs of August”Inside Geocaching HQ Podcast Transcript (Episode 15): GeoToursJune 18, 2018In “Community” With eight years of Geocaching HQ experience, graphic designer Roxxy is one half of the creative creatures that make up the design team here at HQ! She’s been designing souvenirs, geocoins, art, and more since 2010 and she is the artist behind the mythical beings of Hidden Creatures. We chatted with Roxxy to learn how Geocaching souvenirs come to life!Going back to the beginning, were you always interested in art growing up?Always! I can’t remember a time when I haven’t been drawing. My mom used to give me her old art supplies and a big stack of blank paper, and I’d sit on the living room floor and do nothing but draw. She never stopped encouraging me, so I never stopped drawing.What is the first geocaching souvenir you created?I think it may have been the Arizona souvenir for the US—it was inspired by the kind of post card you’d buy along the side of the highway if you were driving through. We made all of the US souvenirs in alphabetical order, but we released them in order of statehood, so one of the first ones anyone saw might have been Pennsylvania or Georgia…How many souvenirs have you created for geocaching?I’ve lost track, to be honest, but it’s over one hundred by now. I started with about one third of the US states, the Canadian provinces and territories, and the states of Australia (that’s around 36 right there), and after that I’ve lost track. That’s where we start to add souvenirs for more countries, plus promotion souvenirs, and event souvenirs.What is your favorite part of designing souvenirs?When I was designing country souvenirs, I really liked the research. It gave me a reason to learn about a place I haven’t been to, and find out what their customs and traditions were, but also what the fun or silly stuff was about a place that made it unique. Sometimes it was really hard to find just one thing to feature for the souvenir itself, because there were so many wonderful choices. I hope I made good ones.For promotional souvenirs, like Mary Hyde or Mission GC, I really enjoy figuring out the best way to bring the idea to life. For example, during Mary Hyde, I found out that the best way to make something look like a hand-drawn map, torn into four pieces, and then beat up, is to actually make a hand-drawn map, tear it into four pieces, and beat it up! I spent part of an afternoon making stains and rubbing sandpaper on a map I had created (and photocopied, just in case I went too far).I have to say, my favorite part about designing any souvenir, is seeing how people respond to them. I like to make things that make people happy.What is your favorite souvenir to design? (Promotional, Country, Etc)Promotional souvenirs are my favorites, because that’s when I get to try different things. I don’t just design the souvenirs for our promotions, but I often get to design the geocoins and social media images as well. If creating a souvenir is like making a cake, then creating the artwork for a whole promotion is like throwing a party.How did you decide on the different Hidden Creatures?There are so many to choose from, that we had to give ourselves some guidelines just to even get started. We began by narrowing it down to four types of environments—forest, oceans, deserts, and mountains—and then started looking for which creatures could be found there. We also looked at creatures that appear in different cultures and mythologies, and tried to use them whenever possible. Then we tried to pick the 12 most recognizable creatures that didn’t look too similar to each other.It was a lot of research and work, and that was before I even started to figure out what they were going to look like.What was your inspiration behind the World Turtle?I knew I wanted a creature that somehow combined all four of the environments, and I wanted it to be big, so that left me with only a few options. A creature like the World Turtle shows up in a few different mythologies, either as the turtle that supports the world on its back (with the help of four elephants), or as a whole country or island that rests on the back of a giant turtle living in the middle of a lake or ocean. The idea of the World Turtle felt big and wonderful, and I knew we had to have one.What is the process for creating a souvenir?The first step is always research; we need to know what we’re trying to show before we can show it. I often do a little extra research on my own, to make sure I haven’t missed any details, and I’ll gather up some reference as I start to get some ideas. We also figure out the best way to show our souvenir.For Hidden Creatures, I started with sketching—yep, everything starts with a real life pencil on real life paper—and I tried a few different ways of putting something together. It’s easier to explore a lot of different ideas when I can compare them to each other right in front of me at the same time. This is usually the most time-consuming and important step for me, because it’s where most of the idea takes shape.Once I have a sketch done, I’ll scan it into the computer, refine it digitally, and then start to add ink, color, and effects.Which Hidden Creature souvenir is your favorite?I’ve spent so much time with each of them that I can’t pick just one. All of the Hidden Creatures have something about them that makes them my favorite, and that thing is usually something that happened along the way to creating a wonderful, magical creature for you to enjoy. I still think of the moment I got the sketch just right, or the hours it took to get the fur just right, or how I figured out how to paint crystals.I do like finding out everyone else’s favorite. I think it’s always a little surprising! People who I thought would like the Mermaid the best end up falling in love with the Yeti, or someone wasn’t very interested until they found out there was a Kraken at the bottom of the ocean. I like to see how excited people are about finding their favorite.In the end, the best part of bringing a souvenir promotion to life—whether it’s the souvenirs or the storyline—is hearing all of the fun geocaching stories that come out of each adventure. Hidden Creatures starts June 27! Share your favorite mythical creature souvenir with #hiddencreatures on social for a chance to be featured on the Geocaching blog in August!Share with your Friends:Morelast_img read more

Resilience Matters for Military Families

Washington, DC: The National Academies Press. https://doi.org/10.17226/25380.  Retrieved from https://www.nap.edu/catalog/25380/strengthening-the-military-family-readiness-system-for-a-changing-american-society. Karen Shirer is a member of the Military Families Learning Network Family Transitions Team and previously the Associate Dean with the University of Minnesota, Extension Center for Family Development. Karen is also the parent of two adult daughters, a grandmother, a spouse, and a cancer survivor. by Karen Shirer, PhDMilitary families play an important role in ensuring that the U.S. military is total force ready and its service members are prepared. The Total Force Fitness model defines family readiness as “the ability of a family to use physical, psychological, social, and spiritual resources to prepare for, adapt to, and grow from the demands of military life” (NAP, 2019). Military families possess many of these strengths and resources plus they have access to other numerous resources to meet the demands of military life.Yet, military families face unique challenges as well as the typical challenges faced by civilian families. They experience disruption, separation and loss when moving their homes and schools due to reassignment, and worry and fear when members deploy to war zones. How do we help military-connected families better weather and even thrive in the midst of these major transitions?On August 20, 2019, Dr. Ann Masten spoke about the science of resilience and how it informs our work as military family service professionals. The webinar was the first in a series of three webinars sponsored by the Military Families Learning Network (MFLN), titled Nurturing Individual Resilience from a Multisystem Developmental Perspective.Here are five key takeaways from the webinar on how we as military family service providers might support military-connected families:Key Takeaway #1:  What resilience is NOTThe concept of resilience has become a buzzword and a focus of self-help gurus that reinforce misconceptions about what resilience is NOT. Please note, resilience is NOT:● Bouncing back after adversity● Pulling oneself up by the bootstraps● Returning to life just the way it was before the adversity● Going it alone to overcome adversityOur American culture, including the military culture, reinforces these misconceptions by our focus on rugged individualism. Unfortunately, none of these concepts gives us a full picture of what it means to be resilient as an individual.Key Takeaway #2:  What resilience isDr. Masten defined resilience as the capacity of a system — person, family, community, economy, society — to adapt successfully to challenges that threaten its function, survival, or positive development. Several key words in this definition are critical and are discussed in the webinars:● System — people and families are their own unique system; the military is a system. As systems they are connected and embedded in other systems. For example, military-connected families are embedded in the military system and oftentimes a community system.● Adapt — systems continually evolve and change; they are dynamic. Their capacity to adapt depends upon other systems around them. When a military family experiences the disruption of deployment, the systems around them provide critical support to help them prepare and work through the deployment cycle. Dr. Masten described this capacity to adapt “ordinary magic.”Keeping in mind that military-connected families are systems within systems will provide a more robust approach to supporting them through major, and often traumatic, life experiences.Key Takeaway #3:  Resilience and Challenges Go TogetherThe human experience brings us challenges in the form of adversity, trauma, losses, and other threats. These challenges include natural and man-made disasters, economic recessions, war, poverty, life changing illnesses or injuries, racism, and neglect. Today’s military-connected families face challenges related to service members’ war injuries and disabilities, including traumatic brain injury, PTSD, death, and loss of limbs.When challenges arise, resilience develops as the system identifies and deploys its strengths and resources to address them, including their own personal ones and those available in the systems around them. Researchers have identified pathways that adaptation to challenge can take. Over time, one can maintain their functioning and even grow in unexpected ways. They can also break down and recover, break down and not recover, or experience a delayed breakdown and not recover. In cases of breakdown, the possibility of recovery remains with the passing of time and/or with intervention.We would never wish to experience adversity so that we can develop resilience or experience personal growth. However, since adversity is an inevitable fact of life, resilience gives us hope that we, and those we serve, can recover and grow from it.Key Takeaway #4:  Resilience Can Be FosteredSuccessful adaptation, or resilience, after trauma or adversity depends upon a number of factors both within the individual and family, and in the systems that surround them. Dr. Masten in her book Ordinary Magic (2014) provides a shortlist of resilience factors or resources that can be drawn on during adversity:● Close relationships● Problem-solving skills● Self-regulation skills● Desire to succeed● Faith, hope, optimism● Purpose and belief that life has meaning● Effective schools and other community institutions● Well-functioning communitiesYou will notice that these factors are a mix of personal, family and community factors. An individual’s capacity to adapt goes beyond personal factors, although they are important, and extends to other systems including families, communities and broader societal system. In the webinar, Dr. Masten goes into great detail about how teachers and schools, communities and military matter for resilience.Key Takeaway #5:  Military Family Service Providers Play an Important Role in Fostering ResilienceSometimes a family does not know what they need to address the challenges they face. As a military family service provider, your role involves assisting them in identifying and accessing the support and resources that are available in the systems around them. The focus needs to be on individual, family and community strengths and resources, and not on their problems and deficits. Dr. Masten suggested a series of three questions to ask when working with an individual or family to keep this focus on strengths and resources:1.  What are the challenges the military-connected family is facing? Is it trauma, loss of income, war injuries, or other things? How can risk be reduced or prevented in the future? The goal here is to identify factors that can be addressed to reduce risk and stress.2.  How is the person or family doing? What are their strengths? How are their physical and mental health? What resources or access to resources do they have? You want to help promote protective factors with the family by supporting their strengths and resources.3.  What will foster the individual or family’s resilience in this situation? What are the resources and strengths they can call on to support them through this situation? How can you help them restore, mobilize and harness the power of “ordinary magic? Here the need is to increase an individual and family’s resources.Dr. Masten summarizes these questions into a resilience framework for taking action by framing positive goals, finding positive influences, assessing assets, preventing-promoting-protecting, and working at multiple levels and with multiple disciplines. Most of all, keep the family at the center of your approach, allowing them to tell you what they hope for and need.The webinar contains many examples and ideas on how to engage families in building their resilience. You can find additional information about this webinar and other two webinars in the series on the Resilience Series learn event page.Remember, for resilience prevent-promote-protect.last_img read more
