Located in Santarém (centre), Portugal, the Ring House is a weekend retreat for a family of four that will eventually become their primary residence. In terms of concept, it was intended to create a dwelling with characteristics and urban interior finishes, that manage to integrate into the rural and more traditional context of Santarém. Designed to be a single storey dwelling and situated on top of a gentle slope, it allows a quiet and serene usufruct that derives from the privileged relationship between the interior and the exterior. The Ring House consists of three well-defined functional areas, a social area, a service area and a private area.Save this picture!© José CamposSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© José CamposThe latter, which has a longer body with East-West orientation, acts as a barrier to the street that passes north. This barrier allows the creation of a private social area, consisting of a terrace with swimming pool to the South. Between the Private area (to the North) and the Social area (to the South) is the Services area, which contains the main entrance of the House the East), a Kitchen, a toilet and a technical area. The L-shaped volumetric arrangement allows the separation of the exterior areas, arranging them according to the degree of privacy desired around the house. On the East side of the House next to the entrance door, from the outside, a covered area (ring) was created to access the Entrance. This allows car parking and because it is a more exposed area, has a less private aspect.Save this picture!© José CamposSave this picture!ElevationsSave this picture!© José CamposThe entire area north of the house acts as an access to the Entrance of the House (the East) and is exposed to the street. To the south, and visually protected by the volume of the sleeping area, there is the outdoor terrace with the pool, lowered relative to the interior level of the House, where it was sought with the difference clearly distinguishing the physical separation between the interior and exterior, maintaining, however, a strong visual connection. One of the most striking elements of the architecture of the house is the long longitudinal “tear” on the North facade, which makes the natural illumination of the corridor that serves the private area of the house. The Ring house floorplan seeks to combine the will of a family living in an urban environment, with the need for it to feel closer contact with nature.Save this picture!© José CamposProject gallerySee allShow lessOpen Call: Institute of Patent InfringementIdeasSubmit Your Project for the 2018 World Architecture Festival AwardsArchitecture News Share Area:  240 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeCSAAOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesCorroiosPortugalPublished on February 20, 2018Cite: “Ring House / CSAA” 20 Feb 2018.

Activists form a human blockade to stop Arctic drilling

By on June 15, 2021

first_imgOn July 29, 13 bold protesters rappelled down from the St. Johns Bridge, which crosses the entrance to the Portland, Ore., harbor. Lashing themselves together to form a human barrier, they remained in their swaying bivouacs for forty hours, supported by 50 kayaks in the water below and supplied by other protesters on the bridge above.The activists were making a last-ditch effort to stop arctic oil drilling by preventing an icebreaker, the Fennica, from leaving its Portland drydock and joining the giant Shell Oil Company’s resumption of drilling in the Chukchi Sea in the Arctic region off the coast of Alaska.Without the icebreaker, it is impossible to proceed with the drilling.Protesters hang off St. Johns Bridge in Portland, Ore., trying to stop Shell Arctic oil driller from leaving port.The protesters were from the Greenpeace U.S.A organization, which denounced Shell Oil and its “absolutely pathological plans to drill for oil in the Arctic this summer.” (democracynow.org)The activists had some initial success: as the behemoth Fennica approached the swaying bodies, it first slowed, and then turned and returned to port.Enraged, Shell Oil and its allies quickly turned to state repression. On July 30, a federal judge in Alaska ordered Greenpeace to pay an hourly fine starting at $2,500 an hour, and increasing by $2,500 per hour each day until maxing out at $10,000 an hour for the duration of the protests.On July 31, federal, state and local law enforcement agencies sprang into action. Among those mobilized were the U.S. Coast Guard; the Oregon Department of Transportation, which closed the St. John’s Bridge; the Portland Police Bureau; the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office; the Clark County Sheriff’s Office; the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office; and the Oregon State Police. A local judge vowed to force Greenpeace to pay for all the extra expense.In a SWAT-team type action, police rappelled down with grappling hooks and cut the ropes lashing the protesters together, cleared the kayakers and forced the protesters off the bridge, allowing the icebreaker to barely edge its way through.Still, a partial victory was claimed: Arctic drilling can only take place in the summertime, which is already half over.A dangerous, dirty and exploitive businessOn the very day that protesters turned back the icebreaker Fennica, Royal Dutch Shell, of which U.S. Shell is a subsidiary, announced that they would lay off 6,500 workers as part of a plan to “manage returns in prolonged oil price downturn.” (Oil & Gas Financial Journal, July 30) Royal Dutch Shell’s second quarter net income dropped 25 percent to $3.4 billion compared with $5.1 billion a year ago. Worldwide oil prices have declined over 50 percent so far in 2015.Royal Dutch Shell is one of the largest oil companies in the world. Among its various enterprises is a 50/50 partnership with Saudi Aramco, run by the Saudi Arabian monarchy.Shell is one of the biggest investors in Nigerian oil and even has joint ventures with the Russian government for drilling in Siberia.Offshore oil drilling is dangerous and dirty, as was shown by the massive Horizon Deepwater disaster in 2010, which killed 11 workers and besmeared the whole Gulf Coast of the United States, leading to hundreds of billions of dollars in damages and untold long-term damage to the environment.How an oil spill might affect an Arctic environment is still unknown, but most likely it would be worse — much worse.Shell is drilling at a location which is 2,000 miles from the nearest logistical support in case of an emergency. The region is subject to crushing ice floes, Arctic hurricanes and total darkness for 70 days a year. An oil spill underneath the ice would be an incalculable disaster.The areas where Shell intends to drill overlap with vital migration routes for whales, walruses and other marine life. Thousands of Indigenous peoples along these routes depend on the Arctic waters for their livelihoods.Moreover, Shell’s initial efforts at exploratory drilling do not inspire confidence. In 2012, a Shell contracted drilling unit called the Kulluk ran aground and had to be towed home. Another driller, the Noble Discoverer, almost ran aground after being chased by an ice floe. Later on, the operators of the Discoverer pleaded guilty to eight felonies for faulty pollution management systems.Finally, there are longer term risks, like what finding oil in the Chukchi Sea would mean for climate change. A study published in Nature magazine found that “pulling any oil and gas out of the Arctic was inconsistent with anything below a two-degree-Celsius rise in global warming this century, a point that’s also known as ‘dangerous’ climate change.” (thestranger.com, April 22)FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Residents Impacted By Bobcat Fire Have Until Wednesday to Apply For FEMA Aid

By on June 12, 2021

first_img Business News STAFF REPORT Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Public Safety Residents Impacted By Bobcat Fire Have Until Wednesday to Apply For FEMA Aid CITY NEWS SERVICE Published on Monday, December 14, 2020 | 3:25 pm Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Residents impacted by the Bobcat Fire have until Wednesday to register for financial support from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.FEMA gives eligible wildfire survivors financial support to help pay for needs such as rent, home repairs, medical/dental costs, funeral expenses, and other disaster-related expenses. Also, FEMA may be able to help with disaster-caused damage that insurance doesn’t cover.The Bobcat Fire erupted in the Angeles National Forest on Sept. 6, blackening about 116,000 acres, destroying 171 structures, including 87 residences and the Nature Center at the Devil’s Punchbowl Natural Area, and nearly burning down the Mt. Wilson Observatory. It damaged another 47 other structures, including 28 residences, and took weeks to fully contain.“We strongly encourage anyone who suffered a loss due to the Bobcat Fire to register for assistance from FEMA,” said Kevin McGowan, director of the Los Angeles County Office of Emergency Management.“During this holiday season, many individuals are feeling a big financial strain. Eligible Bobcat wildfire survivors can use FEMA’s financial support to help pay for needs such as rent, home repairs, medical costs, and other disaster-related expenses,” McGowan said. “Every bit of support helps and we want to make sure eligible L.A. County wildfire survivors get all the support that is available to them.”To be reimbursed by FEMA, residents should photograph damage and save repair receipts. They also should contact their insurers and file a claim for the disaster-caused damage before they register with FEMA because eligibility is determined once an applicant’s insurance claim is settled.If residents have insurance but aren’t sure whether they will be eligible for monetary assistance, they should still register with FEMA.Wildfire survivors can register with FEMA for federal aid in one of three ways:• online at DisasterAssistance.gov;• by downloading the FEMA app;• by calling the FEMA Helpline at (800) 621-3362 (TTY 800-462-7585).If residents use a relay service such as a videophone, Innocaption or CapTel, they should provide FEMA with the specific number assigned to that service when they register.When registering for FEMA assistance, residents should be prepared to provide their personal information, including Social Security number, insurance policy information and a description of the damages or losses suffered in the wildfire.For additional Bobcat wildfire recovery resources, please visit lacounty.gov/recovery or dial 211 for information and resources.

Soldier who killed Daniel Hegarty may face charges

first_img Almost 10,000 appointments cancelled in Saolta Hospital Group this week Soldier who killed Daniel Hegarty may face charges Calls for maternity restrictions to be lifted at LUH Business Matters Ep 45 – Boyd Robinson, Annette Houston & Michael Margey Twitter RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR News Pinterest Northern Ireland’s senior coroner has asked the Public Prosecution Service to consider if a soldier who killed a Derry teenager should be prosecuted.John Leckey made the request after an inquest jury found that Daniel Hegarty posed no threat when he was shot dead by the soldier in Creggan in 1972.He said it was the appropriate course of action given the jury’s verdict.The coroner is legally bound to refer cases to the PPS where it appears an offence has been committed.Daniel, who was a labourer, was shot twice in the head by a soldier close to his home in Creggan. His cousin, 16-year-old Christopher, was shot in the head by the same soldier but survived.The shootings happened during Operation Motorman in July 1972.Earlier this month, the jury rejected claims that warnings had been shouted to the two teenagers before they were shot.The operation was aimed at reclaiming “no go areas” in the city from the IRA.The jury also found that none of the soldiers present attempted to “approach the injured youths to either search them or provide medical assistance”.Following the verdict, the solicitor for the Hegarty family, Des Doherty, said the record had now been “set straight”.

Tablighi Jamaat Foreigners- SC Allows Transfer of Pending Trials in UP; Directs HC to Designate Specific Courts for Expeditious Disposal

The Bench comprising of Justices AM Khanwilkar, Dinesh Maheshwari and Sanjiv Khanna ordered the State Government to approach the Principal Bench of Allahabad High Court with an application to decide which, and how many, courts would take up the trials pending across various zones in UP. The Court also directed the High Court to identify the specific court(s) within a period of one week where all the matters may be listed for hearing. The Bench further clarified that the trial Court would take up the matter expeditiously in order to wrap up the trial within 8 weeks. The Apex Court was considering an application by foreign nationals who were facing trial in courts across the State UP. They had prayed for similar relief of consolidated FIRs and expedited trial, as had been granted by Supreme Court with respect to the original matter filed by 34 petitioners from Delhi. On September 1, the Court had similarly allowed the transfer of all trials pending before Bihar Courts to one particular Court. As the present application came up for hearing today, the Bench expressed its inclination to allow one court per zone in UP to conduct trials. Distinguishing this from Delhi and Bihar’s case, the Court took note of the size of the state of UP where trials are being conducted in 8 different zones. “We are thinking of saying one court for every zone can conduct trial for cases in that zone”, remarked Justice Khanwilkar Senior advocate, Dr. Maneka Guruswamy appearing for the applicants however suggested that fewer courts, not more than a total of 2-3 courts, may be tasked with taking up the trials across the State. Urging the Bench to restrict hearings in pending trials before the least possible specified courts, Guruswamy highlighted the lack of uniformity in bail conditions being laid down in courts across different zones in UP. Pressing the need to transfer the cases before one or two courts, she highlighted that while bail was being granted in certain cases in different zones, the conditions imposed were not practical at the moment. “Take Zone 3, Bareilly, for example, where 8 Indonesian nationals were granted bail. The first three bail conditions are fine. But the fourth condition is that the first secretary of the Embassy must appear in person before Court”, she pointed out. Similarly, having referred to another bail order from the Prayagraj zone, Guruswamy submitted that “since physical courts aren’t functioning, though bail has been granted, conditions of bail cannot be fulfilled.” In this light, she urged that only a few specific courts be designated to hear the trials of applicants. Having consulted with UP State Counsel, advocate Garima Prashad, Justice Khanwilkar stated that it deemed fit to ask Allahabad High Court to decide which court(s) will hear the issue. “We suggest prosecution files an application in High Court which can then decide whether one court should hear the matters by merging various zones or different courts in different zones will hear the same”, he stated. Having recorded the submissions regarding a lack of uniformity in bail orders from courts in different zones of the State, the Apex Court directed the prosecution to move an application before Allahabad High Court to consider the transfer of pending appeals in light of previous orders passed by SC with respect to similar cases in NCT of Delhi. Directing the High Court to decide this within one week of receiving the application, Khanwilkar J. further clarified that the trial Court must wrap up the trial expeditiously within 8 weeks, like in previous orders. Before concluding, UP Counsel Garima Prashad informed court that there were originally 387 cases before UP courts, out of which the trial in 200 cases have already been disposed off. “We have been in expeditious mode already”, she stated. On August 6, a Bench headed by Justice Khanwilkar had directed all pending matters in Delhi to be transferred to the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate in Saket, and accordingly directed the CMM to dispose of all the cases expeditiously, within 8 weeks. On that day, the Centre had informed Supreme Court that look out notices issued against foreign nationals for their alleged involvement in Tablighi Jamaat activities at Delhi’s Nizammuddin Markaz had been withdrawn. Thus, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta had apprised the Court that all such foreign nationals, who were initially blacklisted by the Ministry of Home Affairs, may leave the country during the pendency of trial against them. Upon being asked about the status of trials, Mehta informed Court that 10 out of the 34 original petitioners had chosen to contest the criminal cases against them instead of opting for a plea bargain. The SG had further stated that these trials were before different Courts in Delhi and suggested that they may be brought before one Court to be disposed of expeditiously. Agreeing with this suggestion, the Court had Ordered as follows- “…we deem it appropriate that the criminal cases concerning these ten petitioners pending in different Trial Courts in the NCT of Delhi be brought before the same Court hearing Criminal Case arising out of FIR No.63 of 2020, so that all the cases can be disposed of expeditiously. Accordingly, we direct transfer of stated cases to the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate, South-East Delhi, Saket Court Complex, Saket as suggested and direct the said Court to dispose of all the cases expeditiously preferably within eight weeks from today.” On the issue of sending the foreign nationals back to their home countries, SG Mehta iterated that if those who were under trial chose to go back to their country during the pendency of the case, they may render an apology and be allowed to go back subject to the Orders of the Court. Mehta added that even the remaining petitioners who were facing trial had the option of going in for a plea bargain. Recording these submissions of the Solicitor, the Bench had also noted as follows- “Learned Solicitor General has also, in all fairness, submitted that if the concerned petitioners tender apology, as envisaged by the Madras High Court in the concerned criminal case, the said petitioners can be permitted to leave India despite the pendency of the criminal case but subject to such orders that may be passed by the concerned Trial Court… …The learned Solicitor General has also fairly submitted that as of today only ten petitioners have decided to contest the criminal cases pending against them and are not willing to exercise the option of plea bargaining.” Background On April 2, the Press Information Bureau (PIB) communicated the Government’s decision to blacklist as many as 960 foreigners from 35 countries who were present in India. At the same time, orders were issued to Director Generals of Police (DGPs) of all States and Union Territories as well as the Commissioner of Delhi Police (CP) to register FIRs against such foreign nationals. In light of this, a plea had been filed before the Supreme Court, contending that the decision had been taken unilaterally and arbitrarily. Their plea emphasised that a decision of en masse blacklisting without issuing notice or providing an opportunity of being heard is in blatant violation of not only principles of natural justice, but also, of the Right to Life under Article 21. The petitioners, all of whom have been blacklisted, submitted that not only has the sudden decision led to FIRs being registered against them but has also resulted in them having to forfeit their passports to the State Administration. This, they contended, is a complete deprivation of personal liberty, without following procedure established under law. Hearing the matter, the Court had allowed all these foreign nationals to make representations challenging their individual visa cancellation orders before appropriate authorities. While a certain number of them had opted for a plea bargain, a few others had expressed apprehension in doing so as they would face difficulties in their home countries if they were charged of a crime in a foreign country. Therefore, they had chosen to face trial. Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

The people in Alabama just didn’t know and pronounced it ‘Ten-al.’”Black said Talbot, who was a cracker jack radio announcer on WTBF, was his idol.“Pappy is 94 years old and his mind is just as sharp as ever,” Black said. “I’d like to get him back up here so folks could get a chance to talk to him. That would be a real treat.”’Black said country music continues to be the music of the South and Steve Flowers and Robert Earl Stewart are the most popular analysts on WTBF.Even in today’s world of ever-changing technology, Black said radio is holding fast.“There will always be a place for radio because it’s local,” he said. “Radio will never go away. It’s here to stay.” Black told of the days of floppy discs that were actually “floppy.”“You could wad the discs up and throw them in the trash can, then get them out, straighten them up and use them again,” he said. “The way the discs flopped, if you were in a hurry, you couldn’t get the disc in the slot in time.”But better times – or different times – were coming and Black said he is amazed at the changes that technology has brought to radio broadcasting.“Now, you can be riding down the highway and come up on a situation and phone it in from the road on your cell phone,” he said. “That’s how much times have changed.” Email the authorcenter_img Black reminisces about the good ol’ days of radio Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Next UpThat was the beginning of Black’s long and storied career in radio and as a voice of WTBF Radio, Troy.Black was the program guest of the Brundidge Rotary Club Wednesday.

A Victorian invasion

By on May 3, 2021

first_imgIt is a truth universally acknowledged that a Hollywood studio in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a Victorian novel to turn into a movie. From Vanity Fair (2004) to A Good Woman (2005), and now with Roman Polanski’s new Oliver Twist and another version of Pride and Prejudice to add to the roster, our Victorian ancestors have never been so fashionable since, well, two centuries ago. Wilde, Thackeray and Austen – they’re all ripe for the picking. Petticoats, cravats and cads – throw ‘em all in. The more the merrier.What is less universally acknowledged is that this bizarre regression into period drama is rather at odds with another trend in modern cinema: that of the exciting forward movement of directors such as Tarantino, Rodriguez or Gondry. In many ways, it is more enjoyable to watch Keira Knightley in a tight-fitting corset in Joe Wright’s Pride and Prejudice than it is to watch a flatulent yellow rapist in Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s Sin City (2005). However in the latter film there is a driving desire to challenge cinematic boundaries, all the while keeping the audience on their toes. In the former there is, well, Kiera Knightley in a tight-fitting corset. I know which one I’ll remember in a few years’ time.Yet this reliance on rehashing the past seems set to continue in the future. And it is seeping through to the small screen as well. The BBC will soon be launching a new sixteen-part series of another Dickens novel, Bleak House, starring Gillian Anderson. Dickens wrote Bleak House as a serial novel, to come out in short installations. Following on from this idea, the BBC is televising it in twice-weekly, half hour episodes (“returning the novel to its natural state,” as they call it). A bit like they do with Eastenders. Victorian opus to some, convenient doorstop to others, Bleak House has now become that paragon of easy-watching entertainment: a soap opera.So why is there this plethora of Victorian adaptation on our screens these days? Is it out of an overwhelming respect for our stern predecessors? I think not. Perhaps it is down to Hollywood’s crusade to turn every famous book into a film, to save you the bother of reading anything. After all, the curse of Hollywood is the fear of everything fresh, anything potentially risky. With a point of reference for a movie-going crowd like a sequel or a well-known novel, there is a guaranteed audience and guaranteed money. Or maybe it is all just an excuse to watch Reese Witherspoon walking around daintily in a petticoat, smiling coyly.This is not to say that these Victorian adaptations are bad. Mike Barker’s A Good Woman, a version of Oscar Wilde’s play Lady Windermere’s Fan, was as funny and warm as it was Witherspoon-free. And the rich visuals of Polanski’s Oliver Twist are a truly impressive evocation of Victorian London. These films are all a pleasure to watch, and that, after all, is the first thing we ask of a movie.Here’s the catch. Provided that all these films are doing is compressing eight hundred pages of Victorian prose into ninety minutes of screen time, they will never be more than a distracting hour-and-a-half in the cinema. For a Victorian adaptation to be truly memorable, it must be much more free with the material it’s moving from the page to the screen. In Bridget Jones’ Diary (2001), Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice love triangle was updated into a story that appeals to this age far more than three toffs prancing around on horses. The result is a movie that remains funny and vivid long after the credits roll. In Wright’s offering of the same story, the alterations are much less conspicuous. The result is great entertainment, but nothing to set 2005’s film version apart from those which have preceded it.Any movie industry should be looking to the future and not to the past. There is nothing wrong with adapting the Victorians; there is always something wrong, though, with a lack of imagination. There surely must come a time when audiences cotton on to Hollywood’s recycling act. In the end, it is the importance of being revisionist that is more crucial than the importance of being earnest.ARCHIVE: 1st week MT 2005last_img read more
