The owners of Carlton terrace asked for a break from the past. They looked forward to new spaces filled with natural light, all year round living, and the ability to connect visually with their surrounds. The local street character reveals rows of terrace houses, snug tightly alongside each other. Properties are narrow in width and short in depth. With the standard kitchen, dining and living space requirements, together with an ambitious 4 bedrooms and 2 x bathrooms, the challenge of going “up a level” and addressing the overlooking and overshadowing of neighbors cannot be underestimated.ApproachFor Carlton Terrace, we set out to explore contrasts in volume and texture.Save this picture!© Michael KaiVolumeOur approach was to first create a light and airy, open ground floor plane, with a bold volume above. At ground level, we outline a continuous space from the kitchen to a “green wall” externally. With the space being visually continuous inside and out, each side of the façade benefits from connection to the other. In contrast, the upper-level form is created from the want for appropriate space requirements, rubbing up against the need for sunlight into the north facing windows of the adjacent property to the south.TextureThe monolithic, upper-level form is articulated with a fine patterning of neatly seamed flat locked panels. Contrast this with the delicate, but sharp, screen elements pinned off the façade by a neat gap. Internally, the main space is accentuated with ribbed walls on one side, and a smooth Venetian render, inside and out, on the other.Save this picture!© Michael KaiSave this picture!SectionDesign ElementsWithout resorting to frosted glass and a sill height above 1700mm, a large upper-level window dominates the rear façade. The screen to the window serves the functional requirement of allowing long and short range views from inside the main bedroom and adds a lightness externally. The screen is made from a galvanized ladder frame, clad with single dot perforated flat plate aluminum. The aluminum is held off the main façade to add to the lightness to the otherwise heavy volume.MaterialsIn the wet area, the owners wanted a robust, yet restrained palette. Long lasting and natural in tone. The extensive use of long sheet porcelain for the splashback, benchtops, TV unit and outside bench reveal and versatile material quick to blend in with its context. Internally, polished concrete floors and porcelain tiles wrap up the robust and low maintenance palette.Save this picture!© Michael KaiProject gallerySee allShow lessGolnan Puratos Complex / A1ArchitectureSelected ProjectsBill Gates Purchases 25,000 Acres of Land for Smart City in ArizonaArchitecture News Sharecenter_img ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/883524/carlton-terrace-windust-architects-x-interiors Clipboard Houses “COPY” 2017 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/883524/carlton-terrace-windust-architects-x-interiors Clipboard ArchDaily Anthony Windust, Junko Windust, Scott Durie Photographs:  Michael Kai Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Lead Architects: CopyHouses, Extension•Carlton, Australia CopyAbout this officeWindust Architects x InteriorsOfficeFollowProductsGlassSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentExtensionCarltonAustraliaPublished on November 14, 2017Cite: “Carlton Terrace / Windust Architects x Interiors” 14 Nov 2017.

President Torrijos urged to veto two articles in newly-amended criminal code

first_img HE Martín TorrijosPresident of PanamaDear Mr. President,The National Assembly approved a package of amendments to the criminal code in a plenary session on 6 March. It now falls to you to promulgate the amendments within a 30-day period beginning on 10 March.Reporters Without Borders, an international organisation that defends press freedom worldwide, would like to alert you to two of the 400 amendments, which pose a danger to press freedom and which have been strongly criticised by the Panamanian media (see our release of 9 February). We are referring to articles 164 and 422 of the new legislation.Article 164: “Anyone legitimately coming into possession of private or personal mail, recordings or documents – not intended for publication, even if addressed to that person – who makes them public without the required permission and which results in harm, will be punished by 200 to 500 days of fines or weekend imprisonment”.Article 422: “Anyone guilty of revealing secrets which they hold as a result of official responsibility or contract or allowing others access to them, will be punished with a sentence of six months to one year in prison or its equivalent in daily fines or weekend imprisonment”.The first of these articles is an incitement to self-censorship, as nothing prevents a source from subsequently turning on the journalist originally entrusted with information. The second threatens the access of journalists to sensitive information by imposing silence on potential sources of information from the outset. Both articles seriously jeopardise the ability of the the press to fulfill the role it is supposed to play in a democracy. We therefore hope you will veto them.We thank you in advance for giving this request your careful consideration.Respectfully,Robert MénardSecretary-General PanamaAmericas PanamaAmericas Follow the news on Panama RSF_en News Receive email alerts January 30, 2012 Find out more Reporters Without Borders has asked Panamanian President Martín Torrijos in an open letter to veto two articles in the newly-amended criminal code, which he is supposed to promulgate.

Arrested in February 2002 for posting essays criticising the government online, Quang is suffering from serious kidney problems. This appears to have been the reason for his early release.”Quang’s release is an encouraging first step, but we still expect Vietnam to stop censoring the Internet and stop imprisoning Internet users just for expressing their views online,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It should not be forgotten that Vietnam has one of the most monitored and filtered Internets in the world,” the organisation added.A government source said Quang was freed for “humanitarian” reasons. His health got much worse in prison, where he did not receive the treatment he needed for his kidney ailment. Reporters Without Borders had already urged the authorities to release him on medical grounds on 23 September 2003.The six cyber-dissidents currently detained in Vietnam are:- Nguyen Vu Binh, a former journalist with the Communist Party newspaper Tap Chi Cong San, who was arrested on 25 September 2002. Reporters Without Borders is particularly concerned about Binh, as there has been no word of him for about three weeks.- Pham Hong Son, the representative of a foreign pharmaceutical company, who was arrested on 27 March 2002.- Nguyen Dan Que, an intellectual arrested on 7 March 2003.- Pham Que Duong, a former colonel in the Liberation Army, who was arrested on 28 December 2002.- Tran Khue, a literature teacher and co-founder of an anti-corruption group, who was arrested on 29 December 2002. – Nguyen Khac Toan, a businessman and former army officer, who was arrested on 8 January 2002.On 22 June, Reporters Without Borders will issue a new report on the obstacles to the free flow of information online in Vietnam and some 60 other countries. It will be available on the Reporters Without Borders website (www.internet.rsf.org).BackgroundQuang was sentenced to four years in prison on 8 November 2002 for sending “dangerous” information abroad because he wrote an article and posted it online. Called “Beware of the empire to the north,” it detailed the circumstances in which the government signed border agreements with China.Quang was arrested in a cybercafé by a policeman posing as an ordinary Internet user. The Vietnamese authorities have stepped up monitoring of Internet cafés since March 2004, asking owners to keep a record of the names of all their customers and the websites they visit.

A bronzed JFK comes home to Bruff

It’s a story that continues to endure.”“It is also, maybe, fitting and important to keep in mind the importance of the contribution of emigrants, especially in these times,” Mr Nagle added.by David [email protected] Housing 37 Compulsory Purchase Orders issued as council takes action on derelict sites TechPost | Episode 9 | Pay with Google, WAZE – the new Google Maps? and Speak don’t Type!

Health department faces uncertain future

first_imgLocal News Previous article061419_Juneteenth_JF_01Next articleThe Rise of Digital Wallets and Mobile Payments Digital AIM Web Support TAGS  Gino Solla, director of the Ector County Health Department, is retiring on June 28th with 25 years with the department. Solla began his career with the health department as a health inspector and was appointed as the director in 2003. Solla is planning on remaining in Odessa for about a year or so before moving to the Austin area for it’s cultural diversity. County department meetings to address future budget needs are about a month away and a new vacancy will present potential challenges during the process. Gino Solla, the longtime director of the Ector County Health Department, will be retiring at the end of this month after 25 years of employment with the county, and with his absence he is concerned that the department will fall to the bottom of the county’s list of priorities. The health department’s budget has been gradually scaled back over the years from about $1.2 million in 2016 to about $964,000 this fiscal year. Solla said the department has also seen a reduction of about $150,000 in grant funds, which has reduced the number of employees on staff, as well as the services they can offer. He said the department cannot keep up with the current patient load with only two full-time registered nurses and often has to shut their doors and divert residents seeking immunizations, STD screenings or tuberculosis testing to later times or even the next day. “We’ve cut our budget tremendously,” Solla said. “There’s no more room to cut. You keep losing employees like that, but the population increases, which requires more services. How do you do it?” Advocacy on the department’s behalf for the upcoming fiscal year might be lacking without Solla’s expertise. He has been asked to give the responsibility of attending budget meetings with county commissioners to the employee he feels would be best suited to speak on the subject. Currently his replacement has not been identified and the county cannot publish a job posting until Solla officially leaves his position. “There’s not an assistant director to move up that’s been trained, or is knowledgeable about the budgets, or the actual operational side of the department,” he said. Ector County Judge Debi Hays said that many unknowns exist until the county moves forward with the budget process. A proposed budget for 2020 will be completed by early August. The final budget must be adopted by commissioners by Sept. 10. “Right now, the main focus I think we’ll have through the budget is the addition to the jail,” Hays said. “We need to make sure we have the money to man it and that will take precedence over everything else.” Hays said the opinions expressed by residents during town halls over the past year also carry weight. The top three concerns shared at public forums involved adding additional law enforcement, funding road infrastructure projects and combating illegal dumping. The county judge said no one has approached her and asked for additional nurses. “You have Odessa Regional Medical Center and Medical Center Hospital that provide free programs to all residents of Ector County to help them with diabetes needs, heart problems and dietary needs as far weight control and with cholesterol, so both of those entities provide all of those services,” she said. “There is a clinic on every corner, but no one else can provide services that the jail can provide.” Solla said he has tried to impart a sense of urgency for preventative health to officials and all residents in the community, but he said fighting against the cultural mindset of the majority has been tough. The needle has not moved much for health behaviors or outcomes in Ector County since 2010. The county was ranked 199 out of 242 Texas counties on health behaviors like adult obesity, physical inactivity and access to exercise opportunities in a 2018 county health rankings report published by the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute in collaboration with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Midland County ranked 110, Tom Green County ranked 94, Andrews County ranked 65 and El Paso County came in at 59 on the same health behavior measure. Ector County ranked 200 out of 221 counties on health behaviors in 2010. Solla suggested the community as a whole is mirroring a national trend of more people needing health services but not having access to enough health providers. When Solla asked commissioners during a regularly scheduled meeting about what their vision for the health department was following an agenda item listed as budget goals for 2019 to 2020 and long-range planning, Ector County Attorney Dusty Gallivan said the Court could not answer that question without the subject being placed specifically on the agenda. Hays said on Tuesday that “I can’t tell you what the health department will look like in six months.” Twitter WhatsApp Facebook By Digital AIM Web Support – February 24, 2021 center_img Pinterest Twitter Facebook Pinterest WhatsApp Health department faces uncertain futurelast_img read more

Variations in resting metabolic rates of men in Antarctica

first_imgThe resting metabolic rates (RMR) of 6 men was determined monthly for 12 consecutive months, at Rothera Base, Antarctica (67°34′S, 68°07′W). Body weight and body composition were also recorded. Metabolic rates were within the range of those found in past polar studies, and of young men in the UK, but varied considerably from month to month. The RMR had a mean range of 30% (p<0.01), with individual ranges of up to 38%. Mean RMR was high in spring, summer and autumn, and low in winter. While these patterns appeared to be associated with a well defined annual cycle of activity, variations could not be correlated with periods of intense activity, individually or for the group.last_img read more
