The Robalo Cordeiro House, a single family house in Rua António José de Almeida, in Coimbra, is a two storey building (with attic and basement) that was, prior to the rehabilitation, deeply uncharacterized and in an advanced state of decay. The refurbishment and expansion project started therefore by the total demolition of the interior, recovering the facades and keeping the original external coatings. Except for the roof – where two new copper mansards were inserted next to a preexistent mansard – the main facade remained almost unaltered. The back facade suffered significant changes with the insertion of three new volumes: a concrete volume that extends the living room over the patio, a corten steel volume at the first floor level and a third volume in Ipê wood in the top floor. In all three volumes a formal and material language, clearly differentiated from the preexistence, was sought after, underlining the intervention gesture.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG + SGSave this picture!DiagramSave this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG + SGThe organization of the interior spaces, defined by a new iron and concrete composite structure, recuperates some of the preexistence characteristics, such as the location of interior stairs and pathways. In the ground floor the house evolves from an entryway to the common spaces which – through a system of sliding panels – can be closed or left opened, communicating with each other with great flexibility. The private spaces are located in the upper floors, with two individual bedrooms, a closet and a study room in the first floor and the main bedroom, with closet and office in the top floor. The first floor study room (corresponding to the corten steel volume prominent in the back facade) is a box entirely covered in birch plywood with folding shutters that, by revealing the existence of openings to the exterior, also work as furniture. The wooden volume in the top floor corresponds in turn to a small suspended patio connected to the main bedroom.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG + SGSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG + SGProject gallerySee allShow lessFreedom of Panorama: The Internet Copyright Law that Should Have Architects Up in ArmsArticlesUtopia Photo Series Captures London’s Brutalist ArchitectureArchitecture News Share Houses Robalo Cordeiro House / João Mendes Ribeiro 2009last_img read more

Smacking: Welsh Govt rejects call for swift ban

September 27, 2020 0 Comments

first_imgThe Christian Institute 3 April 2014Fresh pressure to ban parents from smacking their children has been rejected for now by the Welsh Government.A new campaign group of Welsh academics says the prohibition should be enforced quickly, and that only a small change is needed.However the Government says “extensive consultation” would be required before any such move is made.ExamineCritics of a ban on smacking say such a move would criminalise loving parents simply seeking to discipline their children.In February an amendment to ban smacking was rejected by Welsh Assembly Members, as they debated the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Bill.At the time Deputy Minister Gwenda Thomas signalled there would be opportunities to “examine this issue” before the 2016 election. read more

Baldwinsville wrestlers rally, defeat Hannibal 43-42

September 17, 2020 0 Comments

first_img Tags: Baldwinsvillewrestling Whether it was a reflection of where the programs stood or a strong display of character, the Baldwinsville wrestling team found an exciting way to win its 2019-20 season opener.The Bees trailed Hannibal by 15 points with three bouts left last Wednesday night, but won them all and, gaining the “criterium” point, defeated the Warriors 43-42.Twelve bouts were in the books and Hannibal had won seven of them to create a 42-27 advantage before Jarred McMonagle accepted a forfeit at 99 pounds.In the penultimate bout at 106 pounds, Aiden Cali claimed a tough 8-5 decision over Hannibal’s Jack Lamson, but that still meant it was 42-36 going into the 113-pound finale.Needing a pin, Mason Clark got it, putting Ben Alton’ s shoulders on the mat 45 seconds into the second period, and since B’ville now had won eight bouts to Hannibal’s seven, it got the tie-breaker.Max Naples had opened at 120 pounds by pinning Dominic Greenwood in 3:40, but the Warriors fout of the next five bouts, only interrupted at 145 pounds when Liam Fitzgerald edged Hunter Dumas 10-9.B’ville began to comeback with Ryan Hemund’s 68-second pin over 160-pound opponent Drew Butterfield. Tyler Southworth got a forfeit at 170 pounds and Fred Pickard, at 195 pounds, pinned Elijah Wirth in 1:45.When 285-pound heavyweight Naseim Perez lost 8-5 to Santana Salvador, it marked Hannibal’s last win before the Bees made its comeback in the lighter weight classes.Then B’ville ventured to Cicero-North Syracuse on Saturday for the Andersen Tournament, where it finished ninth in a 19-team field with 78.5 points as Peru (162 points) took top honors.Just one Bees wrestler got to the finals – Perez, who pinned Newark’s Connor Simizon in 2:19 in the semifinals, only to drop the title bout to Canastota’s Mike Leibl in a 59-second fall.Cali got third place at 106, edging Fairport’s Chris Cialini 4-2 in the consolation bracket final. B’ville takes on West Genesee Wednesday before heading to the Phoenix Round Robin this Saturday at 10 a.m.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story last_img read more

South Africa plans platinum economic zone

December 18, 2019 0 Comments

first_img9 February 2016With 70% of platinum being produced in South Africa, the government is working towards opening a new industry-based special economic zone in North West, to look into beneficiation.This is according to Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies, who participated in an investment dialogue held under the theme “Driving competitiveness and ensuring growth and stability”, hosted by Brand South Africa, at the Mining Indaba in Cape Town, yesterday.#Davies says a Platinum based Special Economic Zone will be declared before the end of 2016.— the dti (@the_dti) February 8, 2016The restructuring of the Chinese economy had led to its growth slowing down, which had resulted in a slump in the prices of commodity such as gold, platinum, iron ore and coal. This had affected many markets, including South Africa, a producer and exporter of minerals.After the slump, South Africa could no longer afford to see itself just as a producer and exporter of mineral resources, Davies said. The special economic zone board would soon make a recommendation on the exact location of the zone.Minister Davies assessing some of the mining products at the 2016 Investing in African Mining Indaba.— the dti (@the_dti) February 9, 2016“We are supporting quite a number of our projects. There is quite a lot of work that has been done in the country already. The Department of Science and Technology has been rolling out fuel cell-driven small generators to outlying areas to supply schools, clinics and all that.“The Chamber of Mines launched a fuel-cell driven generator in its own building in Johannesburg,” he said.“We will be, in the course of this year, supporting projects. We will be rolling out a special economic zone in North West that is dedicated to the platinum value chain with the expectation that fuel cell technology will come in.”While he could not say when commodity prices were expected to recover, the minister said instead of waiting for another commodity boom, South Africa needed to look at beneficiation to find new uses for platinum products.“I think it means that we shouldn’t put all our eggs in one basket. sitting around and waiting, hoping that there is a bounce back in mineral prices. If your existing customers are buying less of your product, and they are paying less for it, the smart thing to do, among other things, is to seek new uses for your product.”He had been engaging with the platinum industry, Davies said, and all stakeholders were in agreement that there was a need to support the beneficiation of platinum and to find more uses for the product and to create industries around it.The soon-to-be-established special economic zone would come with several benefits and investors would have the advantage of getting a tax rate of 15% as opposed to the 28% that was currently on offer. “So we are looking to establish an industry-based special economic zone there. There are actually some others in other provinces that are under consideration.“What we need to do is establish a set of industries that make use of that platinum, generate long-term uses of it and fuel cell industries are taking off around the world and we as South Africa are looking to get our niche in particular products of particular manufacturing industries off that and will assist in creating a new demand for this mineral and create more opportunities for us to make use of the resource.”Small businessMeanwhile, the Department of Trade and Industry is supporting 15 small, medium and micro enterprises (SMMEs) in the mining sector to show their products and services at the Investing in African Mining Indaba.The department said a national pavilion had been set up, in partnership with the Department of Mineral Resources and Brand South Africa, at the indaba. The SMMEs hail from different parts of the country and will be given opportunities to meet with prospective buyers and investors.Davies said the decision to collaborate with other government departments was motivated by the fact that the Mining Indaba was a global event that provided an international perspective on African mining. It was an opportunity for the government to help the private sector.“The Mining Indaba is a big marketing opportunity for South Africa to highlight the investment opportunities in this sector. Despite the current cyclical downturn in the mining industry, South Africa – by virtue of it being a leading country with reserves in a number of key commodities – remains an extremely attractive mining investment destination and has opportunities for the whole value chain.”The Mining Indaba ends on 11 February.Source: South African Government News Agencylast_img read more

Say cheese! Guggisberg once again named U.S. champions

December 17, 2019 0 Comments

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Joel PenhorwoodGuggisberg Cheese of Millersburg, Ohio has topped the U.S. Champion Cheese Contest once again.The 2019 U.S. Championship Cheese Contest put the Guggisberg’s baby Swiss entry at the very top at the annual competition’s gathering this past week. The company also won in 2015 with their Swiss entry.No matter which way you cut it, it’s an extremely prestigious honor, said Ursula Guggisberg-Bennett.“This is an absolutely huge honor for us,” she said. “It’s one thing to win the top of your category, which we won first place in the Swiss category and then first place in the baby Swiss category. But then to win the grand champion overall over 2,555 entries it’s just an absolute phenomenal win for us. We’re so, so excited.”The company continues to take pride in their northeast Ohio settings, saying the unique mineral deposits of the surrounding soil add a unique feature to their final dairy products.“It’s definitely a collective effort. It starts with quality milk,” Guggisberg-Bennett said. “We have wonderful producers — you can’t make quality cheese without quality milk.”In addition to thanking their dedicated staff, she also highlighted the unique history behind their cheese, particularly that of baby Swiss.“It’s an art and a science combined with experience that was brought back from Switzerland from Alfred and Margaret Guggisberg,” she said. “Their son Richard has really kept the high standards of quality. We take pride in that.“Alfred and Margaret came over from Switzerland. Alfred came over in the late 40s. He had a lot of experience making cheese in the Alps. We are in the largest Amish community in the world and the Amish were looking for a place to bring their milk.“Alfred perfected his premium swiss recipe and it was very much loved by the locals. One thing he noticed was the pallet over here was a little bit different than that of Europe as far as what they want their Swiss to taste like. In America, they don’t really appreciate the strong, robust flavors that they do in Europe. So he set out to create a milder version of his traditional Swiss. He worked and experimented and came up with the recipe for baby Swiss. That’s how it came about. His wife Margaret looked at it and noticed it was smaller in shape — it had smaller eyes, and she said, ‘Oh, it’s a baby Swiss.’ That’s how baby Swiss came about. That story means a lot to us and it means a lot to have won the grand champion with that particular cheese.”With the strong history, it’s important the company selected the right cheese to take to Wisconsin. It’s not an easy prospect, said Guggisberg-Bennett, since the entry itself has to be completely intact for the judges. A number of considerations go into the judge’s selections, including flavor, texture, color, appearance, and much more.“It is pretty difficult. You want to do your best in picking the cheese that you think is going to look great as well as taste great,” she said. “Unfortunately, there’s not really any way to know 100% until the judging itself. We can’t cut into the cheese or anything like that. It’s difficult, but we’re excited we chose right.”Guggisberg is the third cheesemaker now to win the U.S. Champion Cheese title twice. Marieke Gouda in Thorp, Wisc. took home second and third place.last_img read more

Mourinho confirms Pogba has been stripped of vice-captaincy

November 19, 2019 0 Comments

first_imgJose Mourinho confirmed Paul Pogba has been stripped of the vice-captaincy at Manchester United, but insists they have not fallen out.Reports began to circulate prior to United’s disappointing 8-7 penalty shoot-out defeat to Derby County in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday that Pogba – who was rested – had been relieved of the role.Pogba was slammed by his manager during training and told he would never wear the captain’s armband again, as he did not have the right temperament for the job. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Man Utd ready to spend big on Sancho and Haaland in January Who is Marcus Thuram? Lilian’s son who is top of the Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach Brazil, beware! Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! The French World Cup-winner had captained United three times this season in the absence of Antonio Valencia, including the Premier League opener against Leicester City.Mourinho’s decision to give Pogba the armband on that occasion came hard on the heels of suggestions Barcelona were pressing to sign the 25-year-old.But the midfielder has made several comments which some have considered to be veiled digs at Mourinho this season, the latest coming following the 1-1 draw with Wolves on Saturday, and the Portuguese confirmed reports of the change after the Derby clash.He told Sky Sports: “The only truth is that I made the decision of Pogba not to be the second captain anymore. [There was] no fall out.”The person who made the decision to be second captain was also me. It’s just one decision which I don’t have to explain.”After United’s win over Leicester, Pogba claimed he would be fined if he commented on his situation at the club, while he also conceded his attitude was not right in the 3-2 defeat to Brighton and Hove Albion.Pogba’s latest comments on Monday saw him question Mourinho’s tactics, as he implored United to “attack, attack, attack” when playing at home, though he is adamant his remarks were misrepresented.Media reports have claimed Pogba will not demand a move away from United in January, though he is said to be ready to consider his options again at the end of the campaign.

Djibouti DCT Move Prompted by Terminals Poor Performance

October 23, 2019 0 Comments

first_imgzoom The Government of Djibouti cancelled its concession contract with Dubai-based terminal operator DP World on February 22 due to the recent poor performance of the Doraleh Container Terminal (DCT).According to a statement released by the Djibouti Ports and Free Zones Authority (DPFZA), since 2008, DCT has achieved only 57% of its total volume, despite operating in a favourable import/export environment.“In the meantime, DP World developed other ports in the countries close to Djibouti and used aggressive tactics such as the deliberate slowing of the development of DCT in favour of their main asset at Jebel Ali,” DPFZA said.The authority added that the operations agreement for the terminal, awarded in 2006, was not for DP World to design, build and operate DCT, but a joint venture between DP World (with 33.33% of the shares) and Port Autonome International de Djibouti (with 66.66% of the shares). The original agreement excluded Djibouti from decision-making processes and the management of the company.Last month, the authority launched negotiations with DP World in an effort to reach a settlement deal which included the purchase of DP World’s stake. The port operator declared its intention to sell the shares in DCT, but subsequently added a restriction on Djibouti developing new ports on its territory.“This condition, which poses a serious threat to Djibouti’s national sovereignty, was rejected by the Government of Djibouti,” DPFZA informed.Djibouti has therefore asserted its legal right to assume management of DCT, which has now been placed under the authority of the Doraleh Container Terminal Management Company (DCTMC).Following the decision, UAE’s Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash informed via social media that “Djibouti government’s seizure of the Doraleh port is regrettable.”DP World has launched new arbitration proceedings in London against the Government of Djibouti over the decision. DP World dubbed the move “illegal seizure of control” and a culmination of the government’s campaign to force the company to renegotiate the terms of the concession.last_img read more

You gave your audiences and me such a special gift that will be long remembered. And of course my stay at Arcosanti and my visit to Cosanti opened my mind to the genius of Paolo Soleri. I came home not only with the beautiful bell presented to me by Jeff but many others I could not resist at the gallery shop–all of which will be adorning my homes in the islands as a constant reminder to my residency.[photo: Morten Loridsen receives one of the famous “Minds for History” bells as a special recognition]In addition to the wonderful concerts I savored very much the opportunity to speak at the choral workshop (what fabulous performances there by Dr. Copley and the NAU choir!) and at the gallery in Scottsdale.  As I’m sure you realized, I feel very strongly and deeply about numerous things that I was able to discuss in some depth in my talks and in the documentary film. I hope you all came away from this experience enriched in some way through my music, the poetry I’ve set and my words.[photo: At the end of the evening all of the choirs gathered on and round the stage, like 220 people, and sang and were joined by the audience for “For the Beauty of the Earth”]I send each of you my heartfelt gratitude for these most memorable days spent at Arcosanti/Scottsdale and trust that our paths will cross again.Sincerely,Morten LauridsenDistinguished Professor of Composition, USC Thornton School of MusicNEA-Designated “American Choral Master”Honorary Artistic President, INTERKULTUR/World Choir GamesRecipient, 2007 National Medal of September 25, 2015We received a letter from Morten Lauridsen, also some wonderful photos from Alison Steier.Many thanks to Alison Steier for sharing all of the photos in this post with us.Here we see Morten Lauridsen on piano and Jeff Stein.last_img read more
