This house, project by Progetto Arquitetura, is situated in a rich neighbourhood in Barra da Tijuca, Rio de Janeiro. Its construction has been finished in 2010. The house is developed in an “L” shape, divided in 2 blocks, the smallest one housing only leisure activities, and support for outside activities, (swimming pool’s showers, barbecue, SPA, gymnastics).Save this picture!Recommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System –  LINEAOn the entrance, a small patio leads the guest to the monumental 2 storeys high door. A social hall links visually and spatially both ground and first floor and impossible to miss the back garden. The architect’s main idea was to take full advantage of Rio de Janeiro’s warm climate that allows you to enjoy all year round the exterior environment. The ground floor is completely opened to the back garden mixing social areas with leisure, outside and inside, in a single environment.Save this picture!The interior plan of the main house is organized into 2 floors and an underground. On the ground floor, on the right side, living room, home theatre, office (from social to more private areas – from back to entrance). On the left side, the same idea: dining room, kitchen, laundry and employees area.Save this picture!On the first floor, it is located the bedrooms and a small TV room. The main axis constituted by the entrance hall divides the four children’s suites from the master suite. Finally, in the underground area, the garage, technical areas (electrical, etc), storage and cellar. The materials used on the exterior: wood (exterior wall and main door), stone on the floor and white paint for the walls. In the interiors, ground floor, stone on the floor (the same as outside) on the social areas and ceramics on the service areas. White paint on the walls and creme on the service areas.Save this picture!On the 1st floor, wood on the floor, white paint for the walls and ceiling and stone in the bathrooms. For the garage, cemented floor, and ceramics on the walls (stone and white paint only in the cellar). The white tiled roof was a client’s exigency and the option for large eaves is a comfort choice, once that both rain and sun are very strong in this part of the globe. The idea of using a garden roof on the smaller block has mainly to do with aesthetical, because of the views from the bedroomsSave this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessSOM Awarded Commission for Green Tech City in VietnamArticlesSummer Terrace / za bor architectsArticles Share House In Barra da Tijuca / ProgettoSave this projectSaveHouse In Barra da Tijuca / Progetto Year:  CopyAbout this officeProgettoOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasRio de JaneiroHouses3D ModelingRio De JaneiroBrazilPublished on February 19, 2011Cite: “House In Barra da Tijuca / Progetto” 19 Feb 2011.

This house turns itself to the inside, in a way it is instrospective, a feature that comes from the place’s specific constraints  – the linear conformation of the lot, 5x35m, and its neighbour’s tall lateral walls. Because of this, views to the exterior are scarce. With the exception of the front bedroom, all environments turn to the coutryards – the indoor and the outdoor.Save this picture!© Pedro Napolitano PrataSave this picture!Planta – Pavimento térreoSave this picture!© Pedro Napolitano PrataThe outdoor is the garden, where the floor is grass, there’s a tree growing, there you can take rain or sun baths.The indoors is where the aggregating areas of the house are – living room, dining room and kitchen. Its opaque gable roof does not touch the side walls, it leaves a glass strip that lets light shine through.This artifice makes the time passage moore explicit, because the internal light is conditioned to the external nuances of the wheater,be it a cloudy or rainy day, the passage of a cloud or the simple movement of the sun. The light and shadow spots on the wall vary in intensity and form,minute by minute, according to the sun’s inclination – in the summer at noon, it becomes a vertical plumb of light exposing the wall’s irregularities,where some prominent blocks materialize shadow.Save this picture!© Pedro Napolitano PrataIn the upper floor, the courtyards intercalate the three blocks of structural masonry, where each of them is a room.They are connected longitudinally by a walkway that goes through the two courtyards. The walkway, as the roof, does not touch the house’s constraint walls it is narrow, so that natural light enters the lower floor. It has an enlargement in the covered area, where it forms a mezzanine,an intimate room. Under it is the kitchen, the heart of the house that is open for both, dining and living.Save this picture!© Pedro Napolitano PrataSave this picture!AxonométricaSave this picture!© Pedro Napolitano PrataThe house’s structure is of structural masonry, with the walkway and the gable roof’s structure designed in metallic structure,the slabs – made in loco – are inverted to facilitate the distribution of the hydraulic installation, the electrical pipes are apparent,the floor used was hydraulic tiles, green as grass.Na área coberta a passarela tem um alargamento, conforma um mezanino, uma sala íntima, sob ele fica a cozinha, o âmago da casa que está aberto tanto para o jantar quanto para o estar.Save this picture!© Pedro Napolitano PrataA estrutura da casa é em alvenaria armada, sendo as passarelas e a estrutura da cobertura em duas águas em estrutura metálica, as lajes – moldadas in loco – são invertidas para facilitar a distribuição da instalação hidráulica, as tubulações elétricas são aparentes, o piso é ladrilho hidráulico, verde como grama.Project gallerySee allShow lessDe Vries House / Mackay-Lyons Sweetapple ArchitectsSelected ProjectsWorld’s First Floating Eco-Park Planned for Chicago RiverArchitecture News Share Manufacturers: Beton block, Colombo esquadria, Deca, Saltense Lead Architects: Save this picture!© Pedro Napolitano Prata+ 66Curated by Matheus Pereira Sharelast_img read more

  • Purdue, Ohio State Partner to Help Farmers Control Marestail

    first_img SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Purdue, Ohio State Partner to Help Farmers Control Marestail Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Purdue, Ohio State Partner to Help Farmers Control Marestail SHARE Purdue and Ohio State University Extension have partnered to publish a new fact sheet aimed at helping farmers battle herbicide-resistant marestail and its yield-reducing affects on soybeans. Marestail, also referred to as horseweed, primarily emerges in late summer into fall and again from late-March through June in both Indiana and Ohio. The weed competes with soybean plants for soil nutrients, space and water. Mature marestail also can hinder soybean harvest, and it doesn’t respond to treatment from one of the most commonly used herbicides. “Most populations of marestail in Ohio and Indiana are resistant to glyphosate, and will not be controlled by burndown or post-emergence applications of glyphosate alone,” said Mark Loux, Ohio State Extension weed scientist.Glyphosate resistance means farmers need to pay extra special attention to herbicide application timing so they can try to control marestail during early growth stages when it’s most treatable. It also means soybean growers likely will need to use a cocktail of other herbicides to achieve marestail control.Loux and Purdue Extension weed scientist Bill Johnson hope to make navigating marestail control a little bit easier with their new fact sheet, “Control of Marestail in No-Till Soybeans,” which is available for free download at either of the following websites:* Purdue Extension Weed Science – https://www.btny.purdue.edu/weedscience* OSU Extension Weed Science – https://agcrops.osu.edu/specialists/weedsThe fact sheet includes information about marestail biology, soybean yield loss, herbicide resistance and steps for controlling and managing the weed.Listen to Johnson talk about proper burndown timing.“We continue to struggle with marestail control, so we need to emphasize that it’s a multistep process,” Johnson said. “Soybean growers need to plan a two-pass burndown system with an application in fall followed by another in spring, or an application in early spring followed by another at planting.“Burndown treatments have to be done before soybeans emerge. Once soybeans emerge, it’s too late.”In addition to the problems with herbicide resistance, marestail is hard to control because it reproduces easily and quickly. According to Johnson and Loux, marestail plants can produce up to 200,000 seeds that are transported by wind, spreading herbicide-resistant populations.The plant is most easily controlled when it’s still in the seedling or rosette stage, so farmers need to apply burndown herbicides before marestail reaches the stem elongation period. The weed overwinters in the rosette stage and remains there through late April when stem elongation, or bolting, starts. Marestail can grow to heights of 3-6 feet and plants that emerge in the fall will start bolting earlier than the spring-emerging plants, Johnson said. But it’s the spring-emerging plants that cause the most problems for many eastern Corn Belt soybean producers.“Spring-emerging marestail has been the most problematic to manage in the southern half of Ohio and Indiana – especially the plants that emerge in May and June,” he said.

The organisation also accuses the Iranian government of inventing new ways to stifle the press and free expression. News June 9, 2021 Find out more News Call for Iranian New Year pardons for Iran’s 21 imprisoned journalists Reporters Without Borders today condemned the Iranian intelligence minister’s recent allegations against imprisoned journalist and intellectual Ramin Jahanbegloo and voiced concern about a new crackdown on the press in Iran.“Accusing Jahanbegloo of helping to prepare a ‘velvet revolution’ is just a new political manoeuvre by the government with the aim of tightening the gag on the press,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We fear that the authorities – after closing more than 20 newspapers for good, summoning dozens of journalists for questioning since the start of the year and banning others from leaving the country – will now launch a new wave of arrests of journalists.”Akbar Ganji, a leading Iranian journalist currently travelling abroad following his recent release, has appealed to the Iranian community and the press for rallies to press calls for the release of all prisoners of conscience including Jahanbegloo.Intelligence minister Gholam Hossein Mohseni Ejeie accused Jahanbegloo on 3 July of “taking part in a US attempt to carry out a velvet revolution in Iran.” A few days later, Tehran chief prosecutor Said Mortazavi named Hassan Hadad – a judge who has had many journalists arrested and who, according to some sources, was a torturer in Evin prison in the 1980s – as deputy prosecutor in charge of security issues.The appointment has prompted concern about a new wave of arrests among dissident circles. Hadad’s job is to crack down “with force on security problems, espionage, attempts to overthrow the regime and threats to public order.” Since April 2000, he has had the task of cracking down on the “enemy” press.Jahanbegloo, who contributes to several foreign news media including the BBC and the French magazines Esprit and Etudes et Projets, was arrested on 28 April at Tehran airport as he was about to leave the country to attend an international conference on Iran. He has been placed in solitary confinement in a security wing of Evin prison.A total of 12 journalists and bloggers are currently detained in Iran. They include Mana Neyestani, Mehrdad Qassemfar, Orouj Amiri, Ali Hamed Iman and Abolfazel Vessali, who have been held for months while their lawyers have not been allowed to visit them in prison or see their case files.last_img read more

  • One of Hrant Dink’s alleged murderers revives questions about police role

    first_img News Journalists threatened with imprisonment under Turkey’s terrorism law A letter from Tuncay Uzundal, a member of the alleged terrorist group on trial for journalist Hrant Dink’s murder, to the prosecutor in charge of the case has revived questions about the role of the police in Dink’s death. The contents of the letter were revealed last weekend by several Turkish news media including the daily Radikal in its 7 July issue.“Once again, the finger has been pointed at the security forces because of their passivity prior to Dink’s murder and because of what they could and should have done to prevent it,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The behaviour of the main defendants and their attempts to blame each other for Dink’s death should not deflect attention from the urgency to pursue the investigation to the end and to question those police officers whose role has been called into question,” the press freedom organisation added. “This is the only way for the Turkish judicial system to maintain its credibility.”In his letter, which the prosecutors received just before the start of the trial, Uzundal reportedly wrote that police officers told him, “It is the state that will break Dink’s pencil.” He did not, however, explain when and in what circumstances he was told this.Uzundal also claimed in the letter that he told Yasin Hayal, one of the alleged masterminds of Dink’s murder, that his co-tenant, Erhan Tuncel (another of the defendants), was a police informer. According to Uzundal, Tuncel was recruited by Ramazan Akyürek, who was the police chief of Trabzon (their home town) and who is now head of intelligence in the National Security Directorate.In the letter, he describes how Tuncel warned the Trabzon police of the plan to murder Dink. He allegedly told the police: “Yasin Hayal will not serve his four-year prison sentence and Dink is going to be killed.”Arrested on 1 February, Uzundal is being prosecuted under article 314-2 (membership of an armed organisation) and article 82-1a (premeditated murder) of the Turkish criminal code and faces the possibility of life imprisonment. He told investigators he was present at preparatory meetings between Hayal, Tuncel (also an alleged organiser) and Ogün Samast (who is alleged to be the person who gunned Dink down on 19 January).Tuncel, for his part, has accused Uzundal of playing a more important role that he acknowledges in Dink’s death. He claims, for example, that it was Uzundal who supplied Samast with the Turkish flag found in his possession when he was arrested on 20 January.The Dink family’s lawyers have meanwhile appealed against the release of four other defendants – Salih Hacisalioglu, Osman Alpay, Irfan Özkan and Veysel Toprak – by the Istanbul court of assizes on 2 July. The lawyers say the four must be re-arrested because they are “essential for shedding light on all aspects” of the case.The next hearing in the trial is not due to take place until 1 October. In the meantime Samast, Uzundal and other defendants have still not appeared before the court and some key witnesses have still not been questioned.

RBOC hopes the new rates could attract more players, including those who have decided to move to other municipal golf courses because of the antiquated rate structure.Presenting the recommendation to the City Council Monday, RBOC said its first year of management has proven challenging, as the decline of revenu,e coupled with increasing expenses, continued net revenue’s decline.RBOC manages the Brookside Golf Courses through a maintenance and operation agreement with American Golf Company (AGC), signed last June.In 2018, 137,500 rounds of golf were played at Brookside, down from 157,850 in 2016. In the mid-1990s, peak was nearly 180,000 rounds, the RBOC said.A major reason for the low 2018 total is due to the high unattainable rack rate. Because non-resident golfers are required to purchase a $100 annual card to get a reduced rate, many of them had been playing at other golf courses over the past few years because those courses did not require the annual discount card.The new rates at Brookside, which is adjacent to the Rose Bowl, will mean lower fees for the general public, and higher fees for members of the Players Club.Starting August 1, weekend use of the golf courses will cost $44 instead of the former $60 for the general public. On weekdays, the fee will be $34 instead of $38.Players Club members will pay $39 on weekends, from the former $34, and $29 on weekdays, which used to be $24, according to the new structure approved by the City Council Monday.The RBOC said Pasadena residents who have historically enjoyed benefits while playing at Brookside, will still receive discounts in the form of reduced rates for being members of the Players Club, a loyalty program that includes driving range privileges, and cheaper green fees.The program costs $42 monthly; the new rates will provide Pasadena residents a $10 monthly discount.The new rates have also been reduced to 31 categories instead of the former 62, making the rate structure simpler for the golfing community.As to fiscal impact, the RBOC said the new Brookside Usage Fee Schedule would generate an additional $160,000 annually, based on the 2018 utilization data.Designed by famed golf architect William P. Bell, the Brookside Golf Club, a 36-hole complex, is the oldest golf course in Los Angeles County. The Club features two 18-hole tracks: the C.W. Koiner Course, a par 72 measuring 7,104 yards, and the E.O. Nay Course, a par 70 measuring 6,025 yards.

  • Teens spend Thanksgiving in custody of state

On Tuesday, the 2009 Humane Society of… read more Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson By Jaine Treadwell Only two words were needed to describe what it’s like for teenage girls to be “locked up” on Thanksgiving.“It hurts.”Three teenagers were at the Troy Group Home on Wednesday afternoon. On Thursday, there would be only two. Published 12:54 am Friday, November 28, 2008 Email the author By The Penny Hoarder For Christi, this Thanksgiving was the first that she has spent away from home and family.“It hurts a lot,” she said. “I want to go home but I can’t. I’m mad at myself and my family is disappointed in me and I’m disappointed in myself for making the stupid mistakes that put me in here.”Taylor agreed that it hurts to be “locked up.”“I could be going home for Thanksgiving but I got in trouble,” she said. “I stole something. Here we eat at certain times and we can’t have anything after those times. I got hungry and stole some applesauce.”The applesauce that Taylor stole, and didn’t even get to eat, possibly kept her from getting the home pass at Thanksgiving. But it taught her something about going by the rules.Christi said she is learning quickly to play by the rules.“When my probation officer told me that I was coming here, I was so upset,” she said. “I cried and cried. I don’t know long I’ll be here but I know that I don’t want to ever come back again.”Brittany is also certain that she doesn’t want to find herself in such a situation again.“I’ll be here until March and I’m going to be respectful and do what I’m supposed to do,” she said. “I don’t want to come back and I don’t want people to know that I have been in the custody of that state.”“In the custody of the state.” That’s a heavy burden for any 16-year-old to carry.Taylor celebrated her 16th birthday in the custody of the state and that is how she and Cristi would spend Thanksgiving.“We’re going to cook,” Christi said. “We’ll have turkey, green beans and corn. Things like that. My grandmother taught me to cook. So, we’ll have Thanksgiving dinner. Just us and (house mom) Julie.”On Thanksgiving Day, Christi and Taylor said they would sit and eat a dinner they had cooked. After dinner, they would have dishes to wash and the kitchen to clean. And they were sure that all the while their thoughts would be of home and family.“And the stupid mistakes that put us here,” they said. “And how much it hurts.” Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Brittany was apologetic about her good fortune and admitted that would she almost rather spend Thanksgiving at the group home rather than raise the ire of the others.“I want to go home, but I hate to leave them,” she said, not looking at either of her other housemates. “They might think it’s not fair for me to go.”Christi shook her head.“It’s all right for her to go,” she said. “Maybe we’ll get a home pass at Christmas.” Sponsored Content Skip Print Article Although Brittany has been at the group home for only two weeks, she had a home pass until Friday afternoon.Taylor, on the other hand, has been at the Troy Group Home since August. She was not given a home pass for Thanksgiving. Her anger was obviously spurred by misplaced jealousy.“If I could go home, I would,” she said, casting a glace at Brittany. “I’m not mad at her, exactly. I guess, just mad at myself.” Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Latest Stories Book Nook to reopen The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Teens spend Thanksgiving in custody of state Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Acid Reflux (Watch Now)Healthy LifestyleIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?
