La Diana is the exercise of linking visually, volumetrically and functionally two independent and alienated entities: a commercial space on the ground floor and an apartment on the first floor. The architectural strategy was based on drilling the existing slab to create a large enough opening that would activate the relationship in section between the two floors, and in which the stairs are placed. This stairway is fragmented into two parts to offer a more human scale on the ground floor thanks to a 2,20 m high metal platform that acts as an intermediate landing and simultaneously segments the living area and the kitchen.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaThe intimacy issue given by the “groundfloorness” was approached by generating a semi-exterior patio that would act as a filter between the street and the interior.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaSave this picture!PerspectiveSave this picture!© Adrià GoulaOn the first floor, the night areas are organized around the void of the double space. The partitions are solved with equipped walls that include storage, room doors and upper glass panels that allow natural light from the façades into the inners of the house.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaThe materiality is responding to the will to recover and/or emphasize the original condition of traditional architecture. A piece of natural terracotta is placed as the pavement and the walls are stripped to expose the original brickwork with all its imperfections and textures. On the first floor, a concrete strip draws the perimeter of the outer walls and solves the intersection with the ceiling. Again, this strip divides the wall into two heights, adding domesticity to the space, making architecture react to the human scale.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaSave this picture!© Adrià GoulaProject gallerySee allShow lessThe 58-Year Evolution of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Guggenheim MuseumArticlesLife Before and After ArchitectureArticles Sharelast_img read more

This project is the transformation of a 1930’s warehouse into a modern, multi-faceted residence and working space.  In collaborating with the owners’ vision for space as a center for creative conversation, community, and the arts, the new architectural design facilitates the convergence of various programs while serving the needs of the family.  With the intent to preserve the industrial character of the existing warehouse, Natoma works to compose a rich experience of light, material, and functionality.Save this picture!© Brad KnipsteinSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Brad KnipsteinTo overcome the light and air flow challenges common to many urban infill sites, the design introduces a series of conceptual vertical voids into the building to allow for natural light to reach the bottom levels.  A four-story interior atrium descends throughout the building, gaining access to air and light atypical of many other lots in the neighborhood.  Mounted on the four-story wall of the atrium is a 40′ long steel sculpture. This sculpture visually connects all four floors through large windows and openings onto the atrium.  Decks create additional opportunities for light on the top levels.Save this picture!© Brad KnipsteinSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Brad KnipsteinNatoma employs materials that maintain the industrial sensibility of the building while adding an element of warmth.  At the core of the living space is a grand, industrial staircase fabricated out of black perforated metal.  Upon entering the ground floor, one can look up and see all the way to the top through metal grated stair treads.  Walls are often clad in dark bronze mirrors to help reflect light and erase the boundaries of rooms.  A delicate black veil of perforated metal catches the soft afternoon light and circulates it down to the main living and ground floors.Save this picture!© Brad KnipsteinSave this picture!© Brad KnipsteinThe character of the building is kept through exposing the structural steel beams and original ceiling joists.  In contrast, the design explores the use of non-conventional building materials.  A recycled composite paper material often used at skateparks, is utilized throughout the building on stair treads, kitchen counters, and kitchen island cladding as an affordable, durable, and conscientious choice.  On the exterior, the building is clad with vertical steel slats – befitting the neighborhood’s industrial nature while also discouraging graffiti.Save this picture!© Brad KnipsteinLarge volumes of space are transformed into welcoming, multi-functional areas that serve the family’s many interests while maintaining a grand sense of scale and openness.  A soundproofed room is located downstairs as an office and recording space with a network of audio cables hidden in the walls, serving both the husband’s day job purposes and passion for playing and recording music.  An adjacent flex room serves as a gathering space for conversation and collaboration.  Its expansive walls are designed to feature the artwork of young artists participating in a non-profit organization started by the wife and son, serving the local community.  Rooms are left minimally dressed in order to keep spaces open for private gatherings.Save this picture!© Brad KnipsteinProject gallerySee allShow lessH-House / Co.lab Design StudioSelected ProjectsGuest House Pavilion 1401 / Nordest ArquitecturaSelected Projects Share Manufacturers: Warmboard, Alvarado Tile and Stone, COLLIER WAREHOUSE, California Shower Door, Luminalt, Melissa Mac Donald Metalworks, Old World Doors, Wyattstudio Year:  Natoma Street House / MAK Studio Structural Engineering: ArchDaily Area:  4509 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Semco Engineering ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/942236/natoma-street-house-mak-studio Clipboard CopyHouses•San Francisco, United Stateslast_img read more

Syrian journalist killed in Aleppo, rebels blamed

March 12, 2021 Find out more January 7, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Syrian journalist killed in Aleppo, rebels blamed Read in Arabic (بالعربية)The pro-government TV station Al-Dounia has reported that the journalist Suhail Mahmoud Al-Ali died on 4 January from gunshot injuries received while covering fierce fighting in the city of Aleppo.The government media are blaming his death on opposition rebels, who they continue to describe as “terrorists.” Al-Ali’s death brings to 19 the number of journalists killed in connection with their work since the start of the Syrian uprising in March 2011. At least 45 citizen-journalists have also been killed.—————————————————————————————————————–26-12-2012 State TV cameraman gunned down in DamascusRead in Arabic (بالعربية)Syrian state TV reported on 22 December that one of its cameramen, Haydar Al-Sumudi, was gunned down by “rebels” outside his home in the west Damascus suburb of Kafar Souseh the previous evening.“Violence against news providers is becoming more and more widespread and is targeting both pro-government and pro-opposition journalists and citizen-journalists,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We firmly condemn this latest murder and the increasingly heavy toll that coverage of this war is taking on journalists.“While we are not yet able to take a position on who was responsible for Al-Sumudi’s death, we call on all those involved in this conflict to respect the work and physical integrity of all journalists.”According to the government news agency Sana, gunmen were waiting outside Saudi’s home and shot him several times when he appeared. Born in Damascus in 1967, he worked for the state-owned daily Al-Thura before joining the state TV broadcaster in 1998.His death brings to 18 the number of professional journalists killed in connection with their work in Syria in 2012. The annual freedom of information roundup that Reporters Without Borders published last week referred to Syria as a “cemetery for news providers.”A citizen-journalist known as Sami Waeel received serious head injuries from rocket shrapnel during a Syrian air force attack on Aleppo on 24 December. At the time of the attack, he had been filming rubble in the city’s Boustane Al-Qassr district, which has been repeatedly shelled. He worked with local media and with various humanitarian and relief organizations including “Al-Sidq”.Finally, the Syrian Journalistic Association reports that citizen-journalist Mohamed Qwaider was fatally shot while covering a violent clash between the regular army and the rebel Free Syrian Army in Arbeen, a town to the southwest of Damascus), on 6 December. Qwaider was one of Arbeen’s first citizen-journalists and reported for its Facebook and Twitter martyrs page.

Hospital supervisor wins landmark appeal over workplace bullying

first_img Previous articleBusy week ahead in the PJ Matthews Premier LeagueNext articleO’Donnell to see how German public banks operate Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie Michelle Hayes, Hayes Solicitors. Pic: Cian ReinhardtA SUPERVISOR who was intermittently bullied by the staff she supervised at University Hospital Limerick has been successful at the Court of Appeal in overturning the decision to dismiss her case for damages.According to her solicitors, the verdict extends the law on employer liability in relation to employees and imposes a higher duty of care on employers.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Geraldine McCarthy sued ISS Ireland and HSE after she was subjected to five separate incidents of intimidation, shouting, abusive and unwelcome conduct in her workplace at University Hospital Limerick (UHL).Employed by ISS Ireland at UHL, Ms McCarthy claimed that the incidents of unacceptable conduct were perpetrated by fellow employees under her supervision and when she complained to her superiors no action was taken.The case was heard at the High Court by former High Court President Mr Justice Kearns who dismissed Ms McCarthy’s case on the basis that ISS Ireland was not liable to her over the actions of her fellow employees.He said that the incidents were isolated and unrelated There were several months between each incident and involved different employees.However, Ms McCarthy appealed the ruling of the High Court through her solicitor, Michelle Hayes, of Hayes Solicitors to the Court of Appeal.Overturning the decision of the High Court, the three judge Court of Appeal after it was convinced of the cumulative effect of the various incidents that Ms McCarthy was subjected to, the breaches of health and safety which had occurred, the failure of the employer to provide a safe place of work, and the failure of ISS Ireland to investigate each incident following the complaints made and to take action to prevent a recurrence.Commenting on the decision of the Court of Appeal, solicitor Michelle Hayes said that the case extends the law on employer liability in relation to events of this nature in the workplace involving fellow employees.Outlining that supervisors such as Ms McCarthy would not have a remedy before this ruling.“The case imposes a higher duty of care upon employers. In Ms McCarthy’s case, the Court of Appeal ruled that the employer had breached its duty of care to Ms McCarthy, had failed to provide a safe place of work and was negligent.“The judgement is of particular importance to employers and employees when considering potential employer liability for inter-employee events in the workplace,” she added.In its ruling, the three judge court said that the incidents caused stress and anxiety to Ms McCarthy and resulted in her leaving her employment.Justices Peart, Hogan and Whelan concluded that Mr Justice Kearns erred in dismissing Ms McCarthy’s caseDespite referring to Ms McCarthy as “a very genuine person” who “was doing her best”, he was wrong to suggest that ISS Ireland was not liable to Ms McCarthy for the actions of fellow employees under her supervision.ISS Ireland failed to provide a safe place of work at UHL and was therefore negligent.Mr Justice Peart said that Ms McCarthy was not the employer of those whom she supervises, yet she has authority over them. She can both direct the work they are to do, and check that it has been done correctly. It is the sort of role that can potentially bring her into conflict with those under her supervision.“I would consider it reasonable that an employer of such a supervisor should have a particular duty of care towards a supervisor, and to anticipate that such conflict might occur, and to have procedures in place to minimise such conflict and to deal with it when it occurs so as to prevent as far as reasonably possible any recurrence.” Advertisement Shannon Airport braced for a devastating blow Facebook Local backlash over Aer Lingus threat Email Linkedin TechPost | Episode 9 | Pay with Google, WAZE – the new Google Maps? and Speak don’t Type!

Ellen Noël adjusts to new normal

first_img Since the COVID-19 pandemic broke out, the Ellen Noël Art Museum on the UTPB campus has adapted its activities and exhibits to the new way of the world. It has adjusted to social distancing, limited hours and online activities. The museum promotes activities, shopping, community events and more through YouTube and its Facebook and Instagram pages. Development and Marketing Manager Ashley Flores said Art Tales is online on its social media pages. “We also have, at the moment, Art to Go. We usually go to the schools around this time for second graders, but because of COVID we weren’t able to so we decided to bring it online …,” Flores said. “Any student can come in and pick up an Art to Go kit for the month. We have different artists every month. This month we have Frida Kahlo,” Flores said. “They get to watch Story Time and then do an art activity at home with us, so that’s something that we’re trying to do online.” The most recent Thursday night discussion was held in person because there were only 10 people and they had enough room to social distance. If they get more than that, Flores said they will take it online. The Fine Arts Connection for third graders also went virtual. “It is different for us because we’re normally used to doing everything here and having people come in for these programs …,” Flores said. She added that she feels the museum is getting good interaction online. “I think people are really loving it. We have a page called Museum from Home that has everything on there,” Flores said. “They can go in and view our Art Tales. Our Fine Arts Connection is still up, so students can still see that. Then our Art to Go program (and) the book talk discussions. Then we also have one coming up on Jan. 21 with Steven Porterfield and our curator Daniel Zies. They’re going to talk about ‘Betrothed: 250 Years of Wedding Fashion.’” Betrothed is on display through March 7, 2021. People can vote on their favorite dress each week. The winner is announced on Mondays on the museum’s social media at 6 p.m. “I think visiting the museum is pretty safe,” Flores said. “We only allow a certain amount of people — 30 max — and we can spread out to be safe.” Flores said the museum will announce Book Your Bubble today. “It’s where people can come in, book their time that they want. We have specific hours that they can choose from and visit the museum just by themselves. It will be like $20 for five people,” Flores said. The first hour the museum is open is dedicated to senior citizens and at-risk people as well. “We have had pretty good traffic in the evenings, especially with school out,” Flores said. Educator Annie Stanley said the effort to make the museum experience safe started in March. “So this is kind of old hat for us right now. Some of our stuff is online; some stuff we can do in small numbers. The preschool story time/art tales, we’ve kept that online. We have our summer camp. We did in person and our monthly classes we’re still doing in person for children ages 6 to 12. That’s called Adventures in Art and that’s once a month. … We make everyone wear masks and we have them enter through the gardens. They don’t come through the building because our classrooms have access to the garden. We sanitize everything and we keep the classes really small. We’ve been able to do that safely. … We’ve continued to do our Community Art Days for our families and we’ve adapted those where we’re limiting how many people can come in the building. It’s kind of a one-way route so they come in, they can go through the galleries, but when they exit to the garden there are stations they can stop. It’s all no contact, so the last one we did we had artists doing demonstrations, but the people were just watching not touching. Then when they left, they got a goodie bag that had all the supplies. They could go home and do some of the things at home,” Stanley said. Stanley said she hopes by next fall to be back in the schools to offer Art to Go. “… That’s much more dynamic in person. That’s probably the most challenging one to do online,” Stanley said.

NTC’s Dave LaRose Contributes to MISMO’s New Business Glossary

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago  Print This Post NTC’s Dave LaRose Contributes to MISMO’s New Business Glossary Sign up for DS News Daily Nationwide Title Clearing (NTC) , a post-closing services provider for financial institutions, investors and servicers, announced that Dave LaRose, NTC’s VP of Technical Excellence will volunteer to support the Mortgage Bankers Association’s Mortgage Industry Standards Maintenance Organization (MISMO) as it works to create a mortgage industry Business Glossary. MISMO announced plans to create the glossary earlier this year and called for industry volunteers to support the effort.”Dave is an ideal candidate to support this effort,” said NTC CEO John Hillman. “With over 30 years of experience, he has worked as a notary, a title researcher, a real estate agent, a real estate investor and with us as our resident industry expert. In every role, he has mastered the technologies required to succeed and speaks that language fluently. He will have a great impact on MISMO’s effort.”According to MISMO, the Glossary will reflect all processes in the mortgage industry, from initial borrower queries to loan payoff and all events in between, including the provision of services by vendors to regulatory reporting. MISMO hopes the effort will reduce complexity and enable broader use of the organization’s existing data standards.LaRose has been with NTC for the past 20 years. During that time, his responsibilities have included developing technical procedures and making them understood and applied by all personnel. He has also helped NTC develop and establish new lines of service, and was instrumental in developing the training courses and seminars that have contributed to NTC’s unprecedented 99.98% statute compliance rate and .77% reject rate at all 3600+ counties nationwide.”This is an important task,” LaRose said. “I’ve worked with plenty of people in our own industry who were in management and still couldn’t define what a mortgage actually is. I can think of three definitions for this word off the top of my head including one as a verb. It’s time we set the standard.” Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago June 14, 2017 1,371 Views in Featured, Headlines, News The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Related Articles Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Share Save Home / Featured / NTC’s Dave LaRose Contributes to MISMO’s New Business Glossary Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Tagged with: MISMO Mortgage Bankers Associations Mortgage Industry Standards Maintenance Organization Nationwide Title Clearing NTC The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Previous: ClosingCorp Introduces SmartEngine Next: IDS Announces New Document Preview Feature Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago MISMO Mortgage Bankers Associations Mortgage Industry Standards Maintenance Organization Nationwide Title Clearing NTC 2017-06-14 Staff Writer About Author: Staff Writer Subscribelast_img read more

Vitamin D metabolism in polar vertebrates

first_img1. Studies of serum 25-hydroxy-vitamin D (25-OHD) in the Antarctic have been undertaken in husky dog, seal and penguin and compared to man.2. Husky dogs showed a reversal of the expected seasonal variation of serum 25-OHD with maxima in June when the hours of bright sunshine and amount of u.v.-B radiation were lowest. li3. Values for random serum 25-OHD values in seals showed large interspecies differences, the values for Weddell seals being significantly greater than for Crabeater seals (P < 0.01).3. Penguin sera showed low concentrations of serum 25-OHD with no evidence of a response to prolonged exposure to sunlight.last_img
