The words “Behind the Tree” was the starting point for the house, which we thought should include this tree as a front host at the entrance of the house, but in a framed and protected manner, as a protagonist, not only for the visitor or passerby, but also for the interior and the daily life of the inhabitants.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteEach new project for the studio is a challenge to interpret the needs and living requirements of the commissioners.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteSave this picture!Section B-BSave this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteNAGUS, a nickname we chose for the young couple that hired us, aimed to combine the social and private use of the house developed in one single level, articulated both by the everyday use, as well as incorporating daily professional activities in a separated sector, within a flexible space that can be transformed according to each necessity.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteTherefor, on a plot of a thousand square meters, with a front bounded by its irregularity and regulations, we developed the project on three levels.A sub-level consisting of a covered garage for three vehicles, with an entrance ramp that also serves as additional parking space with the tree shading and protecting the ramp, storage and future wine cellar in a semi-covered manner. A ground floor, with social and private areas integrated with the green space of the exterior and a top floor for a study office and a multi-use playroom which in a secluded way overlooks the social space of the house and integrates into the exterior with windows and overhead skylights in the ceiling.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteThe functional plan is distributed by means of an area that contains the private sectors of the house with direct access to the service facilities, which are located strategically towards the less favourable orientation of the house. In this way, a linear and proportioned internal circulation is achieved in a nucleus manner.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteThe space of daily use is fused with a more intimate patio that houses the tree and is disconnected and connected with the social space with sliding panels that disappear behind a piece of support furniture. The hierarchy of the social space is perceived due to the double hight of the space, but also due to its dimensions, when it is completely opened up and expanded to the gallery.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteThe formal study originates from the articulation of pure volumes, emphasized by the crevices in the roofs and cavities for an adequate gain of natural light and cross ventilation. The image starts with a concept always associated with each site in particular, with the line of modernity as a fundamental axis for the studio, pursuing a warm and rustic architecture that fuses with the existing vegetation by the use of wood coatings, solid materials such as stone and exposed concrete in the base,  and steel providing lightness and simplicity to certain details. Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteProject gallerySee allShow lessNoor Completes Reconstruction of the Mirror Palace in IranArchitecture NewsOptical Pitães / Tsou ArquitectosSelected Projects Share Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Save this picture!© Gonzalo Viramonte+ 34Curated by Clara Ott Sharelast_img read more

Judge describes drug issues as worrying

first_imgTwitter Facebook NewsLocal NewsJudge describes drug issues as worryingBy admin – April 20, 2009 409 Previous articleViewers voted Celia most stylish woman on TVNext articleExperience the ancient art of Threading admin Print Linkedincenter_img Email A LIMERICK District Court Judge has described as “worrying” the increase in instances where members of the public attempt to pass drugs to prisoners while in custody in Limerick Prison. Judge Tom O’Donnell’s comments came as a 27-year-old woman appeared before a sitting of Limerick District Court charged with bringing a controlled substance into Limerick Prison contrary to Sec 15(c) of the Misuse of Drugs Act 1977.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The county Limerick woman appeared before Judge O’Donnell where the court was told that the accused allegedly attempted to pass 55 tablets to a prisoner during a visit.The arresting officer, Garda Colleran, told the court of prison officers apprehending the woman as she attempted to orally pass the tablets to a prisoner.Defence solicitor, Sarah Ryan, addressed the court following hearing details of the incident and noted that the drug in question was prescribed to the woman for pain relief following a very bad car accident in which she suffered injuries to her back.Judge O’Donnell noted that these types of offences are on the increase and worryingly, many go undetected and are very serious.“I must congratulate and praise the work of the prison officers and the gardai in this incident as these types of crimes are on a very serious rise.“I’ve noted at least three or four of these in the early parts of this year and its something that could get out of hand very easily.“I must also say that the doctor in question would be very disappointed to know that a patient of theirs would be obtaining tablets, pain killers in this instance, and keeping them to pass on to others.“These are disturbing times for such crimes but I do take into account the early plea and the co-operation offered by the accused. I also note the seriousness of the mitigating factors for the defendant”.Marking the facts of the case proven, Judge O’Donnell issued that a probation report be submitted to the court and subsequent to that, issued bail terms of 100 euro to the accused.The court will hear the findings of the report on June 11.

Observations of solitary waves in the stable atmospheric boundary layer

first_imgLarge amplitude, isolated, wave-like phenomena have been observed in the lowest 40 m of the strongly stably stratified atmospheric boundary layer overlying a coastal Antarctic ice shelf. The waves only occur when prevailing wind speeds are low. They always propagate from over the land, with phase speeds exceeding the local mean wind speed. They have wavelengths of the order of 200 m. Several examples are described and a summary of the statistical properties of these waves events is presented.last_img read more

Champlain College to confer honorary degrees on Lola Aiken and Marc vanderHeyden

first_imgBURLINGTON, Vt.–Champlain College will confer honorary degrees on two prominent Vermont residents at its 129th Commencement on May 5, 2007. The Board of Trustees of Champlain College selected retiring Saint Michael’s College President Marc A. vanderHeyden and Champlain College Trustee Emeritus Lola P. Aiken for this honor.Aiken and vanderHeyden will be awarded honorary doctoral degrees from the private, professionally focused college. Additionally, vanderHeyden will deliver the Commencement Address at Champlain College’s ceremony.”These two individuals come from very different backgrounds, but they both have created positive changes in Vermont’s cultural, historical and educational landscapes,” said Champlain College President David F. Finney. “At Commencement time, we’re pleased to honor their many contributions while reminding our graduates that they also have the power to make indelible marks on their communities and the world.”Lola Pierotti AikenLola Pierotti Aiken of Montpelier is celebrated as an unwavering advocate for Vermont’s educational, historical and community organizations. Born in Vermont’s capital city, the daughter of a stonecutter who emigrated from Italy, Aiken would land a job working for George Aiken in 1941 in his US Senate campaign office, before moving to work in his Congressional office in Washington.She earned her way to the top staff job where she proved herself a catalyst – using her connections in Vermont and Washington to help advance the Senator’s efforts on behalf of Vermonters. Twenty-five years after joining the Senator’s team, she would marry him and continue to work by his side without pay. Over three decades in the capital, Aiken rubbed elbows with six presidents, first ladies and many senators, while today she remains a loyal supporter of the Senator’s legacy. Vermont political candidates still seek her out today for endorsements at campaign time.As a stateswoman and dedicated community servant, Aiken’s energy and “we-can-do-it” attitude is legendary across Vermont. She’s served on the board of directors of UVM’s George B. Aiken Lecture Series, The Vermont Historical Society, Calvin Coolidge Foundation, Ethan Allen Homestead, Rockingham Meeting House and Judicial Conduct Board. Her service has also reached to Central Vermont Home Health and Hospice and the New England Culinary Institute Scholarship Committee. She’s a longtime, active member of the Friends of the Statehouse – where her husband served as Governor for four years prior to becoming a Senator. Aiken’s recent awards include the 2005 Governor’s Award for Outstanding Community Service Vermont Lifetime Achievement Award. She has an honorary degree from UVM and won Norwich University’s Board of Fellow’s Medallion Award in 2002.At Champlain College, Aiken Hall – the former Westervelt home built in 1885, was named in honor of Lola Aiken because of her longtime dedication to Champlain students and programs. She served as a college trustee for the 18 years prior to 1995 and she was an advocate for Champlain’s many student life programs and the Single Parents Program, which has been nationally recognized for supporting single parents as they juggle family and educational responsibilities. Aiken also provided leadership for capital campaigns to build a campus center and high-tech library at Champlain College.Aiken once told former Champlain College President Robert Skiff that she loved one of his sayings: “If you stand still, you lose ground.” Many would agree that Lola Aiken has also lived by these words.Dr. Marc A. vanderHeydenDr. Marc A. vanderHeyden has served as president of Saint Michael’s College in Colchester for 11 years and will step down in June 2007. As the 15th president of the liberal arts Catholic college, the historian has brought intelligence, compassion, creativity and extraordinary development to the institution.A seasoned educator who was born in Ghent, Belgium, vanderHeyden is fluent in three languages and has a working knowledge of five more. Colleagues say he has an acute sense of the need for globally informed education that goes beyond one’s own borders. St. Michael’s trustees have noted that his enduring and primary focus on students and the quality of their educational experience was clear from the moment he set foot on campus.During vanderHeyden’s tenure, Saint Michael’s College strengthened its academic profile, including obtaining an invitation to create a Phi Beta Kappa honor society chapter on campus – one of only 270 colleges and universities nationwide have been invited to do so. vanderHeyden oversaw the completion of a $52 million campaign and constructed important new facilities while enhancing the college’s technology infrastructure.vanderHeyden has involved all of the college’s constituencies in developing a shared vision of Saint Michael’s College. He linked the college to national and international education organizations, led the institution in exploring the importance of its Catholic heritage, and created lasting ties to the arts community.vanderHeyden and his wife, Dana, have rooted Saint Michael’s in Vermont’s cultural community through significant support and collaboration with many organizations. The Lane Series now collaborates with Saint Michael’s on arts presentations nearly every year, the Flynn Theater works with the college in an arts-education graduate program, the Church Street Fire House Gallery recognizes Saint Michael’s as a supporter of several exhibits annually, the Fleming Museum provides free access to Saint Michael’s students and The Vermont Youth Orchestra has a beautiful new home in the Elley-Long Music Center at Saint Michael’s College. During vanderHeyden’s tenure, the college also initiated the artist-in-residence summer program to bring young talent to campus and to build a significant contemporary art collection on campus.As vanderHeyden moved Saint Michael’s College forward, he has also brought his talents to several state and regional organizations. He currently serves on the boards the Association of Vermont Independent Colleges, Eleanor Roosevelt Center at Val-Kill, Green Mountain Power, New England Board of Higher Education, Vermont Business Roundtable, Vermont Campus Compact, Vermont Health Foundation and Vermont Higher Education Council. The diversity of organizations attests to vanderHeyden’s versatility and leadership skills, which have been invaluable to the community at large.last_img read more

District’s policy on math test is flawed

first_imgIn recent years, a state Common Core Task force found more than half of the new academic standards needed substantial revisions. While the Regents adopted revised standards (Next Generation) in July 2017, a full implementation isn’t scheduled to be completed until the fall of 2020, with new state tests being scheduled for spring of 2021.   Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion As a result, the state Education Department has placed a moratorium on the use of state tests scores in teacher evaluations. However, the state continues to administer these flawed tests to our students based on the current flawed standards. Knowing this, Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake is still discouraging students from opting out by having them take these interim flawed tests. They will “reward” eighth grade students by exempting them from Part 2 of a final exam locally crafted by our quality teachers. For those who opt out, they’ll punish them by having them come in an extra day for an additional math final. This message was told to the students days before the state exam, wasting 20 minutes of class time to explain this penalty to them. Sounds more like bullying and coercion as opposed to “appreciation,” as noted in the district’s letter to residents.  And why? Because Superintendent Patrick McGrath’s top priority isn’t the quality of our children’s education, but the all-important rankings based on test scores. Their ultimate goal is to look good to the state Education Department by increasing testing participation rates. This eighth-grade math test policy should have all parents concerned about the direction of the school district.Will FarmerBurnt HillsThe writer was a member of the Burnt Hills School Board from 2010 -2013 and 2014 -2017.   More from The Daily Gazette:Foss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censuslast_img read more

The offences were alleged to have been committed between 2011 and 2012. It was reported last September that he had agreed to accept a one-year prison sentence and fine in order to bring the legal proceedings to an end.Speaking to reporters outside court in Pozuelo de Alarcon in November 2017, he said: “I did not answer, I did not argue. I paid and signed with the state that I am in compliance and the case is closed.”A number of prominent figures in football, including former Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo, his ex-team-mate Marcelo and Barcelona forward Lionel Messi, have been punished for tax offences in the last two years.last_img read more
