The program for this ground-up, single-family residence is organized in a rational manner in an attempt to create visually simple spaces serving as the backdrop to a family’s daily activities. An open living level is situated at the upper floor, allowing for maximum light at the space where most time is spent during the daytime. The bedrooms and bathrooms are located at the floor below and are kept modest in scale. These living and bedroom levels are articulated at the exterior of the building as a light mass resting above a concrete base. This massive base contains the garage and an in-law unit towards the rear of the building, and allows the upper two levels to rise above the busy street.Save this picture!© Joe FletcherIn addition to a clear relationship between the various program elements, bringing daylight deep into the building proved to be a driving factor in the design. Given that the building is located in a tight urban condition, this created a challenge for extending daylight into the building in a meaningful way. The amount of glass at the front and rear elevations of the building was maximized, but this did not solve the issue at hand. By creating a sloped ceiling at the upper level, this allowed the opportunity for a north-facing clerestory window that brings uniform lighting at the upper living level. A large light well towards the center of the building brings light to bathrooms and hallways below. In addition, the stair hallway carries light down to the bedroom level and entry.Save this picture!ElevationFinally, material selection and composition is given high priority. White plaster is selected as the exterior finish for the upper two levels to take advantage of the diffused lighting condition in the Cow Hollow neighborhood of San Francisco. This plaster is juxtaposed against a rough concrete base that indicates the utilitarian nature of the garage. The use of wood at the sloped upper ceiling brings color and variation into the main living space as light rakes across the boards from the continuous clerestory window. Wood and tiled floors are used as a simple means to bring color into the spaces. Ultimately, proportion is given careful consideration while composing each material and element in relation to one another.Save this picture!© Joe FletcherProject gallerySee allShow lessCdV House / DDA Despacho de ArquitecturaSelected ProjectsHouse Architecture Rifa G’07 / Villalba, Rudolph, Vila, López, Canén, Apolant, MartinezSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:San Francisco, CA, United StatesLocation to be used only as a reference.

Facebook Twitter Weekend Storms Damaging Indiana CropsLance Shepherd2017 has been a year of unusual weather, a trend that continues. Over the weekend, we had high winds, heavy rain, and big temperature swings which is taking a toll on this year’s harvest. Around the state there were reports of barns and grain storage systems being damaged by the high winds, and the heavy rains will stall the harvest for several days.Lance Shepard, with DuPont Pioneer, says this unusual fall weather is taking its toll on what were some promising yields, “This weather is going to cause some standability issues in this year’s corn.” He told HAT that the higher than average yields mean the plants cannibalized the stalks to finish the ears, “That is causing stalk weakness; and, with the strong winds, we are seeing a lot of corn going down.”Shepard says not only is the corn being impacted but also the soybeans that are still in the field, “With the big swings in temperatures and the wetness, we are seeing a lot of shattering losses in the soybeans.”According to USDA 70% of Indiana corn has been harvested, and 85% of Hoosier soybeans have been harvested. Regionally, corn was 64% harvested for grain in the North, 69% in Central, and 80% in the South. Soybeans were 87% harvested in the North, 87% in Central, and 75% in the SouthShepard’s recommendation is to check your fields and make your plans for the remainder of harvest.

April 23, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Organisation News Follow the news on Cameroon Radio France Internationale’s Hausa-language correspondent, Abba was arrested in July 2015 in Maroua, in Cameroon’s Far North region, after covering the activities of the terrorist group Boko Haram. As he has been held for 29 months, he should qualify for immediate release. After his arrest, Abba was held incommunicado for nearly three months and was tortured by the intelligence services. He then faced the possibility of being sentenced to death by court martial. A military court finally sentenced him in April to ten years in prison on charges of “failing to report acts of terrorism to the authorities” and “laundering the proceeds of an act of terrorism.” The military appeal court has quashed his conviction on the first charge but upheld his conviction on the second one. “Nothing can compensate the lost years in prison but we are relieved to know that Ahmed Abba will soon be reunited with his family,” said Clea Kahn-Sriber, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “This is a mixed decision inasmuch as only part of Abba’s conviction has been overturned and he has to pay exorbitant court costs. We maintain that he should never have been imprisoned.” For the past two years, RSF has constantly called for Abba’s release and criticized the lack of transparency of the judicial proceedings against him. In its most recent release, issued jointly with the Committee to Protect Journalists, RSF said Abba had been the victim of a “judicial conspiracy” and again demanded his release. Cameroon is ranked 130th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.

Help by sharing this information IraqMiddle East – North Africa Three jailed reporters charged with “undermining national security” December 28, 2020 Find out more After learning of the kidnapping of Al-Dawa reporter Karim Sabri Sharar Al-Rubai and the murder of freelance photographer Munjid Al-Tumaimi, Reporters Without Borders today appealed again to the Iraqi authorities to take concrete measures to protect media personnel.“No less than eight media personnel have been killed since the start of the year,” the press freedom organisation said. “The international public is less aware of the kidnappings because they affect local journalists, but they are no less deadly for that. There are a total of seven kidnap victims at the moment about whom there is no news.”Reporters Without Borders added: “We will not give up demanding proper investigations to identify those who are murdering and abducting journalists, and to put an end to the climate of complete impunity prevailing in Iraq.”Rubai was kidnapped on 11 January by gunmen who forced their way into his Baghdad home and took him away. His family has still not received any word of his fate. His newspaper, Al-Dawa, is the mouthpiece of the Islamic Dawa Party, a Shiite party.Tumaimi was gunned down in Najaf (160 km south of Baghdad) on 28 January as he tried to take pictures in the city’s hospital of people who had been killed or injured in the course of clashes near Najaf with more than 300 casualties. His killers, who were not identified, took his camera and mobile phone.Reporters Without Borders offers its condolences to the family of Suhad Shakir Al Kinani, who was fatally wounded in Baghdad on 4 February when her car was caught in the crossfire during a shootout between a coalition patrol and an armed group. Kinani used to be a journalist with the Iraqi Media Network, but last September she went to work for the Iraqi parliament’s press office.A total of 147 journalists and media assistants have been killed in Iraq since the start of the war in 2003, while a total of 55 journalists have been kidnapped.

TAGSCommunityfire safetyLimerick City and CountyNews Limerick’s Georgian Quarter on O’Connell Avenue.Photo: Alan PlaceLIMERICK City and County Council has stepped up its efforts to enhance fire safety measures at historical buildings in the city’s Georgian Quarter.Up to 67 per cent of upper floors of buildings in the historical Georgian quarter are vacant. The Council is keen to unlock this potential source of accommodation for residents and invigorate the regenerated city centre.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up However, owners and landlords face significant hurdles in bringing their buildings up to fire safety standards while retaining historical character in order to return stock to the squeezed rental market.The local authority joined forces with Enterprise Ireland to launch a Small Business Innovation Research challenge to find innovative solutions to address fire safety issues in historic buildings.This resulted in Dublin-based startup Safecility being awarded a contract to evaluate the ways it can lower the cost of upgrading usable space in the city centre for residential useSafecility wirelessly turns a building’s emergency lighting into a connected device that makes it possible to automate legally required regulatory building fire safety testing.This has multiple benefits for the building owner – the existing fabric of the building is not impacted due to the wireless nature of the devices, while manual in person testing and resulting human error is eliminated. “Fire safety testing is legally incumbent on commercial and multi-unit building owners,” Safecility chief executive Cian O’Flaherty explained.“With our sensor, we can automate emergency lighting testing and improve compliance to make city buildings safer more affordably.“But that’s only the beginning. Our goal is to offer a full suite of building compliance services through our simple sensor which can be quickly installed at minimal cost to landlords and owners,” he added.
