The new single-family house was designed as a separate residential unit and can hold its own next to the existing building from the 80s. It is situated on a partly raised plateau in the south-eastern part of the property. The two buildings differ in their roof design and thus emphasize their autonomy. At the same time, the new building paraphrases the existing building’s design: by its polygonal ground plan, which follows the hill’s shape, and expressive cantilevered floors. Wood was used a material to contrast the rather heavy sand-lime brick of the existing structure. Hierarchically, the new building is supposed to subordinate to the existing building and is therefore set slightly to the rear of the site. The new structure appears like a pavilion and, thanks to the flat roof, has a large accessible roof terrace that expands the small plot effectively. The greening of the roofs is intended to give the new building an animated character and link it with nature and the hill.Save this picture!SectionThe entrance / access is from Titlisstrasse, past the existing building. Between the two buildings is a greened pergola that acts like a buffer zone and brings daylight into the buildings. At the same time, it serves as an entrance zone for the new building. The space allocation plan in the new structure comprises living rooms / bedrooms and a kitchen / bathroom each on the ground floor, and a living room on the first floor with a spacious roof terrace and greened roof; the basement contains a guestroom with direct garden access, sauna area as well as a cellar and a laundry room.Save this picture!© Simon MengesSave this picture!Upper Floor PlanSave this picture!© Simon MengesThe dual materiality of the structure (above ground in wood / basement in concrete) is mirrored on the inside by wood ceilings on the ground floor and 1st floor as well as an exposed concrete ceiling in the basement. The walls painted in neutral white mediate between the materials. Save this picture!© Simon MengesThe large-scale glazing in the south and west creates a connection with nature. Circumferential canopies integrate the sun protection and underline the number of storeys; on the ground floor, the cantilevered canopy becomes a carport. The vertical inverted formwork of pre-greyed larch contrasts with the horizontal ceilings and provides the closed facade with plasticity and an exciting play of light and shadows.Save this picture!© Simon MengesProject gallerySee allShow lessSchauman & Nordgren Architects’ Winning Masterplan Envisages New Harbour Front Ident…Unbuilt ProjectMercedes-Benz Museum / UNStudioSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/805989/house-m-jan-skuratowski-architecture Clipboard “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/805989/house-m-jan-skuratowski-architecture Clipboard “COPY” CopyHouses•Möhlin, Switzerland Photographs:  Simon Menges Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project center_img Photographs House M / Jan Skuratowski ArchitectureSave this projectSaveHouse M / Jan Skuratowski Architecture Area:  217 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Projects Switzerland CopyAbout this officeJan Skuratowski ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMöhlinSwitzerlandPublished on February 24, 2017Cite: “House M / Jan Skuratowski Architecture” 24 Feb 2017.

Case Concept Tractor the Big Summer Farm Show Attraction

first_img Case Concept Tractor the Big Summer Farm Show Attraction Facebook Twitter SHARE case-autonomous-tractorReally it didn’t do anything but sit there at the Farm Science Review and other shows like Farm Progress prior to this week. But in London, Ohio the Case IH fully autonomous concept vehicle was the most photographed object. It was the most talked about as well, and that’s what the manufacturer was looking for at these shows, input from farmers about the future of driverless tractors.“What our concept here is showing the autonomous components and solutions that we can install, not only on the fully autonomous tractor, but on a cabbed version as well,” explained Ryan Blasiak, Advanced Farming Systems Marketing Specialist with Case IH. He told HAT the company is using components like auto guidance that are already featured on tractors available today.“Then we’re adding additional electronics and sensors to make it fully autonomous. So we have LiDAR (light imaging, detection, and ranging) on here and radar as well. What that’s actually doing is looking in front of the vehicle itself and sensing any obstructions or anything that may cause damage to that tractor or implement. Then it’s going to alert the operator and he can dictate what actions to take from there.”The concept according to Blasiak includes better productivity and offering a tractor that doesn’t care what time of day it is.“So if we can have this machine runningThe concept vehicle has done real field work and you can view that in the popular YouTube video. Also at their website is a survey so the company can gain more input which will help guide their commercialization plans in the future.

China censors reports about elite’s hidden funds

first_img June 2, 2021 Find out more January 24, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 China censors reports about elite’s hidden funds ChinaAsia – Pacific China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figures China is ranked 173rd out of 179 countries in the 2013 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index and is on the Reporters Without Borders list of “Enemies of the Internet.” Access to the websites of Le Monde, The Guardian, Global Mail, El País and Süddeutsche Zeitung were blocked in China after they and other international media reported the results of research into the accounts held by members of the Chinese elite in offshore tax havens. The entire Chinese Internet also went down for several hours after these reports appeared online.

GreatFire, an organization that specializes in monitoring online censorship in China, has compiled a list of the blocked media:-* ICIJ-* The Guardian-* The Global Mail-* Sueddeutsche Zeitung-* Le Monde.fr-* El País-* CBC.ca-* NDR.deOn 22 January, the US-based China Digital Times website posted the text of an Internet directive from the Chinese authorities ordering the immediate removal of all articles and posts mentioning the ICIJ investigation.Almost all comments and links referring to the ICIJ investigation have been removed from the Chinese microblogging site SinaWeibo.On 21 January, the day that the ICIJ’s findings were released, the entire Chinese Internet suffered a well-timed massive failure that GreatFire regarded as an unsuccessful attempt to block its mirror sites. GreatFire has created a mirror of the China Digital Times site, which has also published the ICIJ’s findings in English and Chinese.

A NIGHT TO REMEMBER: ‘Stars’ working hard to prepare for Feb. 8 competition

first_img By The Penny Hoarder Published 9:30 pm Friday, January 31, 2020 A NIGHT TO REMEMBER: ‘Stars’ working hard to prepare for Feb. 8 competition You Might Like Next UpOn the dance floor will be familiar faces, Shelia Jackson, Tracy Jones, Jonah McWaters, Troy Weed, Jeffrey Bennett, Tonya Terry and Sanders. Their partners will be professional dancers with Patti Rutland Jazz.For Kelly Sanders, dancing is nothing new. But organizing Dancing with the Stars: Troy Edition as a fundraiser for BEYONDance is a new venture.“Being involved with BEYONDance at TES is encouraging and so rewarding,” Sanders said. “When you see the kids having so much fun dancing, how involved they are and how their eyes light up, you know it’s all worthwhile.” Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson At least some moves he’s comfortable with, he said, laughing.Bennett is no stranger to the spotlight. He is as comfortable on television talking about Wiley Sanders Truck Lines as he now is on the dance floor.“You’ve gotta have moves if you’re going to dance to ‘Mustang Sally,’” Bennett said laughing.His professional dance partner, Christina Green, has taught Bennett some moves that accommodate his bad knee and bad foot.And, no. Those are not excuses, Bennett said, laughing.  “I had foot surgery and had to wear a boot, so some people asked if I could dance. I said, ‘Can I dance? Yes, I can.”Bennett said, as much as he has enjoyed dancing with a star and will enjoy the friendly dance competition, the real reason he is dancing is for the kids.“When kids are excited and happy and dancing, it warms my heart and God smiles,” Bennett said. “I’m so happy I was asked to dance, even if I have two left feet. And, I’m blessed to work for people and with people that think about others and do for them.”Jonah McWaters was, at first, more than hesitant about Dancing with the Stars.“Dancing has never been my forte,” he said. “So, dancing on stage was not anything I wanted to do. But, I finally decided I would do it and I’ve had a blast.”McWaters said he’s ready to take center stage and let the good times roll.He and his professional dance partner, Erin Smith, considered several dance options and decided on hip-hop.“We were thinking about four different songs, but, after thinking about it, hip-hop gave us the most options to have fun,” McWaters said. “We just wanted to have fun.”The clock is winding down to dance time.“Am I nervous? One hundred percent,” McWaters said. “If I don’t remember the dance moves, I’m hoping that muscle memory will take over.“I really didn’t want to say, yes, to this but I’ve had a blast. What I say to those who get this opportunity in the future is ‘just do it.’ It’s fun and for such a good cause. I’m glad that I didn’t say no.”Shelia Jackson won’t say she’s glad she said ‘yes’ until the dance is done.“We’re dancing to a pop dance that has a fast tempo. I just hope I don’t give out of breath,” she said, laughing.Jackson said her dance partner, Elisha Burroughs, is an excellent dancer and a good teacher.“I’ve learned a lot but I should have been practicing for five months. I just wish I could sing my way through,” she said.The Jackson/Burroughs duo has a dip planned for their dance.“I’m going to wear something pretty in case something goes wrong with the dip,” Jackson said, laughing. “I’m proud I was invited to be a part of a program that brightens the faces of children.”“Dancing with the Stars: Troy Edition” is at 6 p.m. Saturday, February 8 at the Claudia Crosby Theater. Admission is $25. Tickets will be available at the door.  All proceeds support the local BEYONDance program. Sponsored Content Sanders said BEYONDance provides new opportunities for learning, the development of socialization skills and the fun of dancing.“Dancing with the Stars: Troy Edition has generated a lot of interest and excitement around town and, hopefully, this will become an annual event,” Sanders said. “If so, the funds raised will provide opportunities for more students and at more schools to participate in and benefit from dance.”The local “novice” dancers have had as much fun practicing their dances as the kids at school.Jeffrey Bennett did not hesitate to say ‘yes’ to the invitation to dance, nor did he hesitate to say he has “got some moves.” Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Print Article By Jaine Treadwell Email the author “Dancing with the Stars: Troy Edition” will take center stage at the Claudia Crosby Theater on the campus of Troy University on Saturday, February 8.And, it will be a night to remember and one with long-lasting benefits.Kelly Sanders, event organizer, said Dancing with the Stars: Troy Edition is a benefit for the Patti Rutland Jazz Arts in Education Outreach Program, BEYONDance, which is in its third year at Troy Elementary School. All students in grades one through six are involved, weekly. Dancing with the Stars: Troy Edition will help fund the program at TES and, hopefully, help extend the program to other schools in the county, Sanders said.

RIVALRY: Ocean City vs. Mainland

first_imgSammy Williams is escorted by Mike Gray and Jake Schneider. Photo Credits: Ian Crowley Written by: Phoebe PrettymanOn a crisp fall night under the lights, the Ocean City Red Raiders played the Mainland Mustangs, a classic South Jersey rivalry. The Red Raiders set the tone of the game with some good defense early on. They proved that they were ready to defend anything that the Mainland Mustangs tried. The Raiders gained possession on their 43-yard line, thanks to a reception by Jake Schneider (Sr.). Jake has over 100 receptions which is 17 away from the CAL record. Joe Repetti (Sr.) got some good yardage on the outside right before he drove to score the first touchdown of the game. Brendan McGonigle (Jr.) added a successful extra point to make the score 7-0, with Ocean City in the lead.Mainland played with a lot of side-to-side offense, but due to some incomplete passes and the Raider’s strong defense, they could not make it down the field before OC took possession. Jake Schneider (Sr.) had a great reception, his 102nd, and gave the raiders some good yardage. Jake Inserra (Sr.) made a run on the inside to make it to 1st & goal which was then followed by a touchdown. This was Inserra’s 7th of the year. He also leads the team in tackles. Brendan McGonigle (Jr.) added another point to the board making the score 14-0. The Raiders stayed steady on defense for the rest of the quarter, despite Mainland’s attempt to spread them.Jake Schneider showed they how it was done.Jake Schneider (Sr.) kept the momentum up with a double coverage reception from Joe Repetti (Sr.) early on in the second quarter. Shortly after, Repetti ran to the outside to the end zone as there was a flag thrown on the play, the first penalty of the game. After the penalty and two good sacks from Mainland, the Raiders were pushed back. However, that didn’t stop Ocean City as Joe Repetti (Sr.)  threw a pass, avoiding a sack, to Brad Jamison (Sr.) for a touchdown. With the addition of a successful extra point by Brendan McGonigle (Jr.), the score was 21-0 with the Raiders in the lead.Another great throw from Joe Repetti (Sr.) received by Jake Schneider (Sr.) at the 10-yard line prefaced a drive down the center that led to another touchdown by Joe Repetti (Sr.), his second of the game.

London Jersey Boys Star Matt Corner on His Frankie Valli Transformation & More

first_img View Comments Declan Egan, Simon Bailey, Matt Corner & Matt Hunt in ‘Jersey Boys’ (Photo: Brinkhoff & Mögenburg) Jersey Boys has set up shop as a West End long-runner. The Olivier Award-winning musical all about Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons is now on its second London theater, the Piccadilly, and is currently hosting a fresh set of principal actors. Broadway.com caught up with Matt Corner, the delightful actor now playing Frankie, to talk Jersey accents, singing falsetto and the appeal of golf.Welcome to your first West End starring role!Thank you! I graduated from drama school three and half years ago, so it seems totally surreal to me to have reached this point. If your career is about climbing Everest, I feel as if I’ve now made it to base camp.You have a history with Jersey Boys already.Yes, I started out 18 months ago in the first national tour of the show as the alternate Frankie doing two shows a week, which suited me perfectly, and then they gave me the part on the tour. In London, this is the first time since the show opened in the West End that all Four Seasons are brand new, so that’s been quite special—all four of us are bonding just as the guys did in real life.What did you know about the Four Seasons before the offer came your way?I knew the show but didn’t know much about the band.I bet you learned quickly.I went away and did my research and listened to all their original tracks to get a sense of the sound and how Frankie was achieving it. I saw the film and thought John Lloyd Young was excellent, but mostly I didn’t want to listen to other people’s impersonations. I wanted to try and make it my own, and the best way for me to do that was to go right back to the beginning.Did you know you could sing so high?That totally surprised me. I’ve always been able to sing high and preferred rock-style tenor music like AC/DC or Queen and Bon Jovi—and also Stevie Wonder. But when I started down the audition process for this, I thought, “I better get the falsetto sound under my belt,” so I kind of stumbled into it.What about capturing the physical resemblance?I have blond hair and blue eyes and am 5’9” whereas Frankie’s 5’5”, so this was never a part I looked at and thought, “I could play that.” But they put a wig on me and darkened my eyes and cast everyone around me bigger and it works. Our Bob Gaudio [Declan Egan] is 6’5”!Have you met Frankie?Back in December when he was on tour, I went to see his show in Glasgow. My best friend had booked me in for my birthday present, and we went backstage afterward and sat in his dressing room.How did that experience affect your performance?It informed me in a lot of my choices in terms of what I was doing onstage. Frankie has this power about him and is very still: he doesn’t give a lot away. So I try to arrive at that sense of stillness when we reach the end of our show since that’s him; that’s his aura.Did you worry about the accent demands of the role?We have a Jersey boy—or man, I should say—in the cast: Mark Heenehan, who plays Gyp DeCarlo. He’s the real deal. It’s lovely to have that authenticity, so he can check our accents if they’re off. He hasn’t said anything to me so far.Have you ever been to New Jersey?I haven’t, but I’m desperate to go! I want to visit the Belmont Tavern in Belleville where these guys played; if and when I go over, they’ve said they’ll show me around. Also, I have a singing coach [in New York] named Katie Agresta, who looks after all the Frankies and who teaches me by Skype, so it would be great to go see her.How do you relax?I play a lot of golf in the daytime. That’s the perfect sport for me. I have a gold membership with a golf club five miles out of London and that’s my getaway from it all: it’s my slice of the countryside.Does this role permeate your offstage life—for instance, do you find yourself singing “Sherry” in the shower?I tend to save that for the show. You know you love this music when you hear it every night and it’s like the first time you’ve heard it. Every night the opening chord of “Oh, What a Night” makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up, and that’s the honest truth.What’s next for you?I’m absolutely besotted with the lead character [Christopher] in The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.I’d really like to play that part. It’s something full-on that you’ve really got to throw yourself into, which would be an awesome challenge. I guess we’ll see.last_img read more

Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru Move Forward in Process of Integration

first_imgBy Dialogo January 10, 2011 Chile, Colombia, Mexico, and Peru have taken the first stop toward forming an Area of In-Depth Integration (AIP) that could enable greater openness in migration and trade and that will be promoted by a Pro Tempore Secretariat for which Chile will be responsible, an official source said. Ministers from these four countries met on 6 January in Santiago, where they decided to begin talks toward this body, proposed by Peruvian President Alan García on 4 December, during the Twentieth Ibero-American Summit of Presidents in Argentina. “What this includes is having full freedom in the future for the circulation of goods, services, and capital, in addition to taking the pertinent measures to facilitate the movement of persons among these four nations,” Chilean Foreign Minister Alfredo Moreno affirmed. At the same time, the AIP will have the objective of ensuring that these four countries – which together account for 55% of Latin America’s exports to the world – have the necessary competitiveness to stand up to Asian markets. For this purpose, a Pro Tempore Secretariat was created, for which Chile will be responsible during 2011 and which will work on forming the AIP. Within a three-month period, a commission of deputy ministers is to develop a “road map” that includes the issues that the AIP will address. The Colombian minister of trade, industry, and tourism, Sergio Díaz Granados, and the Mexican secretary of the economy, Bruno Ferrari, also participated in the meeting.last_img read more
