ONE COMMUNITY WEEKLY UPDATE DETAILS

 

HIGHEST GOOD HOUSING PROGRESS

Highest Good housing, cob construction, earthbag construction, straw bale construction, earthship construction, subterranean construction, sustainable homes, eco-homesOne Community is demonstrating an eco-cooperative approach to world change through Highest Good housing that is artistic and beautiful, more affordable, more space efficient, lasts longer, DIY buildable, and constructed with healthy and sustainable materials:

This week, Charles Gooley (Web Designer) focused on two pages: The Earthbag Village Tools and Equipmentent and Open Source DIY Earth Dam Design & Construction for Water Retention, Pond & Lake Creation. He replaced images on several pages: Large Scale Gardening, Open Source DIY Permaculture-Design, Most Sustainable Lightbulbs and Light Bulb Companies, and Consensus With Large Groups. The replaced images on the last page had links that may need updating. This work is now ready for review. Additionally, thirty-six placeholder images across recipe pages were replaced with images provided by the graphic designer. Earth constructions like both of these are an important part of an eco-cooperative approach to world change with One Community’s open source plans. See his work in the collage below.

Joseph Osayande (Mechanical Engineer) continued helping finish the Vermiculture Toilet designs. This week, his work focused on a new idea for the support system, which was modeled in SolidWorks and is still in its preliminary phase. A draft model was created for team critique, leading to further design changes. The conversion from whole blocks to unistrut pieces is being planned, including how to bolt them together for a structure that is only three inches in width, with bolting three struts together being a potential solution. Version 2 of the structure was made, with changed dimensions and aligned faces, and a stabilizer piece was modeled with 5/64-inch holes to keep the two support pieces stable. Future steps include researching hooks needed to latch onto the chamber’s vertical unistruts and determining how to attach the unistrut pieces. The vermiculture toilets and other sustainable human waste processing technologies form the basis of One Community’s open source model and eco-cooperative approach to world change. See below for some of the pictures related to this work.

Rizwan Syed (Mechanical Engineer) also continued helping finish the Vermiculture Toilet designs. This week, Rizwan focused on designing L-shaped corner brackets in SolidWorks to support the removable sliders of the vermiculture chamber system. His designs included a short corner bracket, intended for placement in sets of three at equal intervals, and a larger bracket spanning the entire length of the slider. Corresponding CAD modifications were made to the external unistrut structures to enhance slider operation above the chamber container. Additionally, he did a static structural analysis on the slider block using ANSYS FEA tools to assess deformation and stress distribution. Two loading scenarios were simulated: one with uniform load distribution and another with load concentrated in a small circular area at the plate’s center. Inputting dimension and material data into ANSYS, he calculated total deformation and maximum equivalent stress on the slider. Rizwan also provided a comprehensive update on the project’s progress over the past two months, outlining critical action items for future phases. The vermiculture toilets and other sustainable human waste processing technologies form the basis of One Community’s open source eco-cooperative approach to world change. Here are a few photos showing examples of his work.

AIRCRETE TEAM

The Aircrete Testing Team’s summary, covering their work on Aircrete Compression Testing was managed by John Sullivan (CBU Chemical Engineering Student) and includes Jonathan Crago (Civil Engineering Student), Preston Thompson (Civil Engineering Student), and Tad Matlock (Environmental Science Student). This week, Preston, Jonathan, and Tad each concentrated on their respective tasks related to aircrete research. Preston collaborated with the team to produce aircrete batches using various methods, including Aircrete Harry and Domegaia, encountering challenges with collapsing samples and issues during compression tests. Jonathan and his team focused on creating aircrete cylinders using the Domegaia method, experimenting with mix adjustments and curing techniques, but faced consistent failures with moist samples. Meanwhile, Tad did his part contributing to our eco-cooperative approach to world change as he worked on drafting and proofreading trial summaries for the Aircrete webpage, ensuring 20 trials were documented with necessary visuals. Additionally, he formulated an outline summarizing past team data, highlighting achievements and areas for improvement. John and the team focused on resolving the collapsing issue associated with the Domegaia method. They began utilizing a concrete mixer, which offered some improvement in consistency but continued to produce samples prone to collapse. John views the concrete mixer as a promising approach but acknowledges the need for further refinement to achieve consistent batches. Despite adjusting soap concentration, mixing time, method, and water-to-cement ratio, all attempts resulted in sample collapse. If the team cannot achieve reliability with the Domegaia method soon, John proposes shifting focus to Aircrete Harry and potentially discontinuing efforts with Domegaia altogether. These aircrete tests contribute to the housing aspect of One Community’s open source model as an eco-cooperative approach to world change. See below for some of the pictures related to this work.

The Earthbag Village 4-dome Home Team was managed by Khushboo Parmar (Project Manager) and includes Michaela Silva (Architect), Adefola Madehin (Electrical Design Specialist), Yusuf Thanawala (Structural Engineer), and Karthik Pillai (Volunteer Mechanical Engineer). This week, Adefola reviewed electrical codes related to wiring and installations in Earthbag structures. His review covered guidelines for running electrical wires through Earthbag walls and floors, ensuring the safe and accessible placement of outlets and switches, and proper grounding and bonding techniques specific to Earthbag buildings. He also examined the installation requirements for electrical panels and procedures for inspections and testing to meet safety standards. Michaela finalized the proposed dome profile using specified diameter and Earthbag standards, revised the floor plan to accurately depict the junctions of all Earthbag walls, outlined the living space boundaries, synchronized the building section with the updated plan and dome profile, and laid out the open floor plan for the kitchen. On the 4-Dome Cluster Roof Design Team, Karthik did his part working towards this eco-cooperative approach to world change as he reviewed the Earth Dome Loft Structural Engineering and Calculations webpage to understand the project requirements and clarified his contributions in the weekly meeting. He continued working on creating a 3D layout of the four-dome cluster orientation, shared relevant screenshots and references to Dropbox, and plans to complete the 3D modeling within the next 2 to 3 weeks. Yusuf, also on the 4-Dome Cluster Roof Design Team, gained clarity on the 4-Dome cluster design following a meeting with his teammates, where the team decided to focus on the common loft first, with attic details to be finalized later. Yusuf also did his part working towards this eco-cooperative approach to world change as he began working on the STAAD.Pro analysis and reviewed the codal provisions for wood design using the AITC manual. Additionally, Khushboo prepared for and held the 4-Dome Cluster Roof meeting to support project progress. In the meeting, the team members introduced themselves, identified blockers that were hindering the project, and communicated these issues to Jae for support. The team also discussed their action plans for the next week to advance the project. Khushboo received confirmation for an interview, but the candidate did not attend. She continues to review the Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) for both teams to better understand the projects, their goals, and the organization.

Huijie focused on developing the chart components for the new feature, Total Org Summary. She utilized Material UI to create the chart and set the sizing parameters correctly. She worked on connecting data from Redux states for the charts. Additionally, Huijie did her part contributing to our eco-cooperative approach to world change as she addressed updates for the fix time not match task by properly adding manually entered lost times to the timelog page. Min worked on adding manager icons on the team tasks page, formatted the icons, checked for bugs, and prepared the work for review. He reviewed teammates’ previous week summaries, time logs, photos, and videos, providing feedback on their work and completing all managerial tasks. Min scheduled the weekly meeting with the team and answered queries on claiming and starting tasks. Peizhou worked on the refresh efficiency issue. He programmed the system to remember the last edited user’s ID and passed this ID from one component to its child using ref. He then checked if the user ID of the corresponding child component matched the last edited user’s ID, and if so, marked it. Finally, Peizhou attempted to scroll to that component’s position after re-rendering.

Sandhya focused on the intricate task of developing the PDF component for the Weekly Volunteer Summary within the HGN Software Development project. She worked on troubleshooting runtime errors and addressing issues like “ReferenceError: process is not defined” and missing module errors for PieChartByProject and WbsPiechart due to missing ‘recharts’. During this period, she also participated in a meeting with Harsh to discuss progress and the issues she was encountering. Sandhya’s work included creating the PDFDocument.jsx to define the structure and content of the PDF and developing ShareAsPDFButton.jsx to handle the functionality for downloading the PDF using html2canvas and jsPDF. The process included pulling updates, merging branches, and resolving conflicts, all while ensuring that the new code did not disrupt existing functionality in other components like TeamReport.jsx. The week also involved a deep dive into the codebase, fixing various errors, and ensuring the new PDF component followed the structure of totalOrgSummary. Sri did his part contributing to our eco-cooperative approach to world change as he joined the development team working on the weekly-volunteer-summary-dashboard branch and created Pull Request #2395 titled “Sri/volunteer status and volunteer activity tabs.” He introduced a custom and responsive component namedStatisticsTab.jsx for displaying Volunteer Status and Activity tabs in the Total Organization Summary Dashboard. The main changes include receiving props such as title, number, percentageChange, type, isIncreased, tabBackgroundColor, and shapeBackgroundColor from the parent container TotalOrgSummary.jsx to dynamically render the components. Additionally, Sri implemented styles from a Vanilla CSS file,StatisticsTab.css, defining colors and designs specific to the Volunteer Status & Activity Tab. He also created two constant arrays, VOLUNTEER_STATUS_TAB and VOLUNTEER_ACTIVITIES_TABin totalOrgSummary.js to manage all volunteer status and activity information.

The Highest Good Network software is how we’ll be managing and objectively measuring our process for an eco-cooperative approach to world change across our social architecture, construction, production, and maintenance processes. This week, Abdelmounaim addressed an edge case involving the blue square feature, diagnosing an issue where inactive users not logging time for over a week were not receiving blue squares. He traced the problem to Shengwei’s code, which prevented new users from receiving blue squares. Abdelmounaim identified the root cause, implemented corrective measures, and tested the solutions to ensure proper functionality.

Lu did her part contributing to our eco-cooperative approach to world change as she focused on rewriting the code and fixing bugs in the unit tests for `PeopleReport/components/PeopleTasksPieChart.jsx` and `PeopleReport/selectors.js`. During the testing phase, she refactored the selector functions to ensure accurate filtering and processing of data according to updated requirements. Lu also enhanced the performance and visual accuracy of chart functions within the `PeopleTasksPieChart` component, addressing rendering issues and improving data binding. She rewrote test cases to cover edge scenarios and expand test coverage, debugging issues related to state management and asynchronous data handling. In addition to her technical responsibilities, Lu managed assistant team duties, including compiling the weekly report, doing good reviews of teammates’ work, and curating exemplary work images.

Jiadong did his part contributing to our eco-cooperative approach to world change as he worked on updating the dashboard’s badge system, uncovering and addressing multiple bugs in the backend badge routers and controllers. His refactorization efforts aimed to streamline system operations for improved efficiency, with ongoing refinements planned.

Shrada worked on resolving UI issues within the Reports feature across various screen sizes. Her optimizations included adjusting button layouts to ensure proper display between 1100px and 1350px width, refining top margins for Projects/People/Teams tables on screens below 1350px, and fixing issues with the project/people/team report graph visibility on screens smaller than 550px.

Yili resolved the Permissions Management info icons issue in Owner > Other Links > Permissions Management. The icons, situated beside save and delete buttons, previously failed to open pop-ups, rendering the UI unresponsive upon interaction. Even using the browser back button did not resolve the issue, instead redirecting users to the dashboard upon browser reload. Yili also identified discrepancies in the pop-up information and slated for correction. See the Highest Good Society and Highest Good Network pages for more on how this relates to an eco-cooperative approach to world change. See the collage below for the team’s work this week.

This week, Changhao worked on unit test development for `timeentry.jsx`, managed the software development team, and assisted the team with development-related issues. He resolved several issues but identified some edge cases requiring more time and plans to request extended hours to address these. Changhao also hosted the weekly team meeting, created the weekly team folder for uploading photos and videos, monitored time logs and task progress, and addressed an issue where a team member incorrectly logged time to the wrong task three times by sending a reminder via Slack.

Dhairya focused on addressing the “Fix Projects find user function” task, identifying the root cause of the issue affecting user discovery within the projects section, and developing a sort and search function to optimize user assignment processes.

Hetvi worked on meta fields, resolved a few bugs causing loading issues after creating the taxonomy, continued working on back-end data flow, testing, and resolving remaining bugs. She completed the development of meta fields and the backend page, worked on the front-end structure of the search engine by creating shortcodes, resolved backend bugs, created a live link for her local site, developed the form and filter for the search engine, and worked on the AJAX functionality to filter search engine results as her contribution to our eco-cooperative approach to world change.

Hoang did his part contributing to our eco-cooperative approach to world change as he focused on fixing a bug in the suggested task changes page, ensuring task changes are only approved or rejected once, regardless of how many users with appropriate permissions attempt to process them, and prepared a pull request to enhance the system’s task change functionality.

Peterson fixed two bugs on the “User Profile” page in the modal for assigning users to a team in the “Teams” tab, including creating the team and adding the user automatically after clicking the “Create Team” suggestion from the autocomplete, and adding a button to create the team with a warning if the team does not exist.

Shiwani did her part contributing to our eco-cooperative approach to world change as she worked on the UserProfileModal unit test, adding nine test cases, including rendering without crashing, checking if the modal opens and closes correctly, verifying the modal title, ensuring the Cancel and Close buttons work as expected, confirming the modal message displays correctly, and checking the Resize button’s functionality and presence based on the type. She created a mock redux store and used it to test these cases, continuing to add more test cases with plans to complete the unit test and raise a PR next week.

The Highest Good Network software is how we’ll be managing and objectively measuring our process for eco-cooperative approach to world change across our social architecture, construction, production, and maintenance processes. This week, Abi worked on troubleshooting issues related to the backend pull request, researching and debugging to understand why some database queries were returning empty arrays. Additionally, he added queries to retrieve necessary data for the overview reports page, including total active teams, total badges awarded, and anniversary statistics.

Gowtham made progress on the “Fix ‘Filter by Over Hours’” task within the HGN Software Development project by integrating total tangible hours with weekly hours, setting up a filtering mechanism based on weekly committed hours, and developing a feature to assign badges for contributions exceeding 25% of committed hours. By the end of the week, he refined the filtering process to exclude entries from individuals with zero hours and filter out hours that were 25% above the committed hours, enhancing the system’s capability to manage and display over-hour data as his contribution to our eco-cooperative approach to world change.

Kyrene resolved a bug by removing the dead space on the user profile page, dealing with complications from a permission button exclusive to the Owner account. After submitting the fix, she received requests on GitHub for additional button margins and color changes, adding the margins but identifying that color changes were an application-wide issue. She assisted a cohort mate in resolving a bug related to a new route not connecting to the backend by suggesting a date format revision, which resolved the problem. She then began a new task to add margin to a table but encountered a backend bug in the dist folder, requiring further investigation.

Luis did his part contributing to our eco-cooperative approach to world change as he  started unit testing the inventoryController, beginning from scratch to ensure solid understanding. He faced issues testing the getAllInvInProjectWBS function, which returned undefined or timed out, but implemented the unit test after researching solutions. He then tested postInvInProjectWBS to double-check his previous work, planning to complete the test by the end of the week.

Mengtian completed a Jest unit test for the NotificationCard component and created a new pull request for a unit test for GoogleDocIcon.jsx, ensuring the accuracy and functionality of the components. Any issues identified during testing were documented and addressed.
