Redevelopment of an area in the historical centre of San Quirino. Several sort of interventions, from recovery to demolition and reconstruction, investigated the role of materials in the renovation of the historic urban core of small Italian towns. The reinterpretation of the use of traditional stone walls had to deal with their fragility, in a region considered an highly risky seismic area.Save this picture!© Elisabetta CrovatoThe main building of the complex (house 1) has been restructured to create a single family residence, preserving some features of architectural significance: stone walls, an arched portico and a main façade in which the rugged nature of the materials was combined with an harmonious distribution of openings.Save this picture!© Elisabetta CrovatoThe other building (house 2) is the result of the demolition and reconstruction of a barn, whose structure was in critical conditions, and the transformation into a coach-house.Save this picture!© Mattia BalsaminiThe overall project re-invented with a dose of irony the elements of construction, playing with the building tradition, with the role of materials and with the once established hierarchies.Save this picture!© Mattia BalsaminiIn the house 1, the original structure was treated as a shell within which creating a new living organism, built up by sliding together box-shaped volumes at different levels to create complex spaces. These boxes of bare reinforced concrete emerge in different ways from the exterior of the building: somewhere they protrude through the original walls, elsewhere they end flush with the stone wall, or occupy part of the portico.Save this picture!© Mattia BalsaminiReconstruction of the house 2 had to follow the rules of the building code, which imposes for all intervention in the historic centers the use of stone in the traditional shapes and formats to prevent the loss of identity of the small rural centers. While the shape of the house is defined by reinforced concrete slabs, traditional stone in reinterpreted in a “cosmetic” use, in this way subverting the hierarchy of the main building.Save this picture!© Elisabetta CrovatoBoth the houses have a concrete structure, (the first as a reinforcement of the old stone walls), which respond to the requirements of an highly risky seismic area.Save this picture!© Mattia BalsaminiSave this picture!Ground floor planThe buildings are characterized by a highly insulating envelope and low energy consumption systems (heat pumps).

Young autoworker dies at hands of Detroit police

first_imgAnthony Clark ReedOn March 30, 24-year-old Anthony Clark Reed died at the hands of Detroit police. The young African-American nursing student, also an autoworker, was stopped by police for an alleged traffic violation for having tinted windows on his vehicle. The windows, however, were factory-installed and thus not likely in violation of any state law.Handcuffed, the asthmatic youth told police he couldn’t breathe.Officers say they gave Reed two puffs of an inhaler and then performed CPR unsuccessfully. The unconscious Reed was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead, allegedly of a heart attack, according to a hospital staff person. (huffingtonpost.com, April 2)Reed lost his life just two blocks from his father’s Springwells Avenue Baptist Church in southwest Detroit. The family wasn’t notified by police of his death until almost 12 hours after the incident.“Why wasn’t there an officer there to talk to me and tell me why we had lost our only son?” Reed’s father, Pastor Kevin Clark, asked. “Why was there complete silence about his death until 8:30 the next morning? … Something happened that they did not want the public to know about, least of all me.”Clark further stated: “When Detroit police pulled him out of the car he was already in panic mode … and they handcuffed him, and he’s trying to tell them he can’t breathe. I believe it caused his death. … He dropped dead right there, in the hands of Detroit police officers who were negligent.”Reed’s friends and family packed a candlelight vigil at his father’s church. Compared to the Floyd Dent case in nearby Inkster, Mich., there is not yet mass public outrage over Reed’s death. Media coverage has been spotty concerning this police killing, one of more than 300 so far this year in the United States.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Donegal will become operational on Saturday 5th September. The new Community Testing Centre is located on the St Conal’s Hospital Campus site, Letterkenny in the upper car park area. Primary Care General Manager for Donegal, Edel Quinn, welcomes the opening of the new Community Testing Centre Facility and stated that “The centre will ensure that testing is delivered to the people of Donegal as required in an appropriate facility. The new facility has been developed by HSE Estates who were advised on requirements for testing by the clinical and administrative managers who run the testing service and with advice from the HSE Infection and Prevention Control manager. The dedication of HSE staff and the cooperation of contractors who have worked on the new centre has resulted in a very quick turn around to have the centre ready and this is very much appreciated. I thank St Eunan’s GAA Club for hosting the testing service to date and wish the club well with the rest of the season.” Testing in Co. Donegal has been delivered from O’Donnell Park GAA Grounds in Letterkenny over the past six months. The HSE is most appreciative of the support of the St Eunan’s GAA club in allowing the HSE to utilise their facility for testing. The club provided volunteers to assist with operating the centre and have been cooperative and flexible in assisting the HSE to deliver testing from its facility. The new Community Testing Centre is a purpose designed , dedicated facility which will allow for testing to be carried out for as long as is required in managing the response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The new centre will operate a drive through model of testing with four testing bays available. Testing capacity can be adjusted to meet demand by adjusting the number of testing bays in operation and by adapting its opening hours as required. Any person presenting for testing who does not have transport can also be accommodated. In addition to the testing bays the administration and support staff who support the delivery of testing will also be located in the new Community Testing Centre. Administration support is required to support scheduling of testing appointments and to ensure testing packs with swabs and information requirements are ready and prepared for those attending for testing. The administration and support functions are essential to ensure testing runs as efficiently as possible. Storage is also available on the new Community Testing Centre site for essential PPE and equipment. Staff facilities, in line with recommended infection prevention control standards, are also available in the new centre.   Testing remains a key activity in the response to dealing with COVID and the new centre supports testing services being delivered as required in all weather conditions and for extended hours when required. In recent weeks demands for testing have been high in line with national trends. 2190 tests were delivered by the Donegal Community Testing Centre in the month of August. 446 tests have been delivered in the first three days of September. John Hayes, Chief Officer, HSE Community Healthcare Organisation Area 1, thanked all staff involved in the delivery of testing and those involved in the development of the new Community Testing Centre on the St Conal’s Hospital campus site. Mr Hayes stated ” The provision of a dedicated testing facility in Donegal which meets required standards and provides for testing to be delivered as required will ensure a future proofed testing service is delivered to the people of Donegal. My thanks to all involved in bringing the new centre to this point and to our testing centre staff, who have all come from other roles in the HSE, for the high standard service they are delivering. The HSE encourages all of those who receive an appointment for testing at our new Community Testing Centre to make every effort to attend as it is through testing and contact tracing and by adhering to public health advice that we can all play our part in continuing to combat Covid-19.” Facebook Previous articleProspective EU Commissioners named by governmentNext articleSuccess for Donegal jockeys at Down Royal News Highland New Community Testing Centre to open tomorrowcenter_img Loganair’s new Derry – Liverpool air service takes off from CODA RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR WhatsApp Pinterest WhatsApp Google+ Facebook Twitter Community Enhancement Programme open for applications Publicans in Republic watching closely as North reopens furtherlast_img read more

Developers pitch New York City casino

first_imgShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Share via Shortlink (Illustration by Kevin Rebong for The Real Deal)New York needs money, and some real estate developers say they have just the solution: another casino.According to the New York Times, Vornado Realty Trust has proposed a gambling venue at its property near Herald Square; Morris Bailey has discussed having one at his own Herald Square property; and L&L Holding Company has pitched one idea as part of its $2.5 billion project at West 47th Street and Broadway.In the past, the state government has dismissed the idea of a casino in Manhattan, but the latest push could have a better chance, what with the pandemic leaving the state with a $15 billion shortfall.Read moreCasino operators push for NY gaming licensesTrump in 2014: NY’s oversaturated, new casinos will fail The industry is playing to the moment. “Times Square market is ripe for a high-end casino,” said a promotional document for the L&L project, cited by the Times. “Be the future.”The government has the authority to issue three new casino licenses starting in 2023, though gambling industry has been lobbying to move up the timeline for years.Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s Tuesday budget proposal reportedly allows the state to seek out information from developers and the gaming industry about their interest in the licenses.While some state lawmakers see the licenses as a means to bring in revenue, others oppose the idea.“I’m not a big fan of casinos, period,” said Democrat Liz Krueger, who chairs the Senate Finance Committee.Brad Hoylman, another Manhattan state senator, told the newspaper it “would be a fight to get me and a lot of other people to support a casino.”For many years, state-sanctioned casinos were blocked entirely by the legislature — especially by then-Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver — on the grounds that they would create and victimize compulsive gamblers. But eventually Cuomo, state legislators and voters approved several licenses for upstate casinos as well as a “racino” (without table games) near Aqueduct Racetrack in Queens.The upstate venues have mostly struggled, but the one at Aqueduct has been a big revenue generator, providing easy access for New York City gamblers who previously had to schlep to Connecticut or Atlantic City. Yonkers also has a racino, so-called because the venues were partnered with failing race tracks to prop up the withering horseracing industry.But researchers have found that a small but significant percentage of gamblers develop an addiction for it.[NYT] — Sylvia Varnham O’ReganContact Sylvia Varnham O’Regan Message*center_img Full Name* Email Address* TagscasinosCommercial Real EstateVornado Realty Trustlast_img read more

Accelerating flow of the Brunt Ice Shelf, Antarctica

first_imgPosition fixes made at the British Antarctic Survey station, Halley, on the Brunt Ice Shelf are considered for the period 1968–82. These show an initial westward velocity of approximately 400 ma−1 rising to over 700 m a−1 by the end of the period. The data are well fitted by two straight lines. The first for 1968–71 has a slope 430 m a−1 in agreement with that found by Thomas (1973) for the period up to 1968. The second for 1972–83 has a slope 740 ma −1, a large increase sustained for up to 10 years.last_img read more

Union panel discussion cancelled as only one person attends

first_imgExperts speaking at a recent panel discussion on stalking and harassment at the Oxford Union were surprised to find only one student in attendance.The event, held on Tuesday, was due to feature experts on the topic, led by Jennifer Perry, who has worked on e-crime since 2005 and wrote the UK Guidelines on Digital Risks for victims of domestic violence and stalking in 2012.Among the other speakers was Dr. Emma Short, Director at the Cyberstalking Research Centre, and Harry Fletcher, a Parliamentary campaigner and ex-Assistant General Secretary of NAPO. Alys Key, a student at Somerville who was the only person to attend the event, said in a public Facebook status, “Sadly, due to a lack of attendees (I was the only person there), the event was cancelled at the last minute.“I managed to chat to the speakers (who were having conciliatory refreshments at the Union’s expense).“We ended up having an in-depth discussion about the problems facing women today in Oxford and beyond.”She told Cherwell, “I think that the low attendance was due to a combination of factors. Firstly, there’s the obvious bad press around the Union at the moment which might have led some people to think it wasn’t really an appropriate space for this discussion.“Then there was the organisation of the event itself; I only found out about it a couple of days beforehand from a Facebook Event. Only about 20 people had clicked ‘attending’ and looking through the names it was obvious these were all Union committee members.“There was also the Guild-Union garden party going on at the same time, and use of other rooms in the building meant the panel discussion was to be held in the TV room – somewhere I’ve never been before and which feels quite out-of-the-way.“When I actually found the event, I was the only person there and one of the speakers told me that they were going to have to cancel.”She added, “I don’t think the poor attendance necessarily shows anything about Oxford students’ views on sexual violence, though one does have to wonder how much the poor turnout was due to the Union’s reputation at the moment.”A spokesperson for the Union told Cherwell, “Due to a lack of uptake, the Union decided to reschedule the event for Michaelmas 2014.“This was agreed by all parties involved –we remain committed to offering platforms through which we can combat issues of sexual violence, both within the University and beyond.”This comes in a week where the OUSU Women’s Campaign has urged students wearing sub fusc for exams to wear a white ribbon, pledging, “never to commit, condone, or remain silent about violence against women, and to stand with the survivors of gender violence.”last_img read more
