Not so many jobs begin like this one, with an owners’ list of wishes and hopes for their new home. A list much closer to the principles and values architects usually work with, often secretly, than the ordinary expectations of those couples facing this unknown challenge. Lists always full of good intentions but often incomplete. This was the start, loaded with responsibility, yet an excellent start.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaThe plot, located in a residential area of Sant Cugat, near Barcelona, had enough good attributes to become the project main line. One of the main goals was to achieve a close and essential relationship between the house and the garden in such a way that they both became the extension of each other. All that, without falling into the unavoidable, often out of proportion, and so recurrent large glazed panels: they wanted walls, and we also did. A house with walls in a garden for an art collectors couple.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaFor those reasons, from the right beginning, the proposal searches the balance between placing the maximum number of rooms on the ground floor yet keeping the garden free from masonry work volumes. This idea is developed through a volumetric composition shaped in three boxes spread throughout the garden, almost aligned and located in the plot northern side creating a wide outer zone facing south. The first box, to the east, houses the children’s area with three single bedrooms upstairs and a playroom on the ground floor.  Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaThe second one, in the centre, accommodates the main room: the kitchen, a nearly 30square metre and 4metre high room dominated by a large fireplace. The third box, to the west, contains the parents’ zone, with the bedroom at the garden level and a high ceiling studio on the first floor.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaThe spaces created between the three boxes are covered sheltering two different environments, open to the garden in north-south direction and can be closed with big folding windows. These spaces offer a very different atmosphere, much more related to the garden area than to the house. The first of these interstitial ambiences, between the children’s area and the kitchen, serves as entrance hall. The second one, bigger, between the parents’ zone and the kitchen, is the living room but not a conventional one: a green house during winter and a fresh porch in summer.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaThe residence is all circled by the garden, the most part of it facing south. The corner (west), sharp-shaped, gathers the kitchen garden and a pond to bath in. In the north, the distance between the green fence and the house varies between 5 and 6metres and increases up to 9metres at the uncovered car parking place. This space is connected through a 3metres wide path, parallel to the east fence, with the main southern garden. The interstitial spaces of the house (entrance hall and living room) become connecting porches between the front and back gardens.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaAbout volumes, the house is composed of three brick masonry cubes of different heights set parallel to the back street. Although having several dimension windows that depend on their function, the cubes are predominantly massive. Besides, the interstitial areas between cubes, covered by a concrete slab and framed by folding wooden glass doors, are essentially ethereal. Actually, the space becomes an open porch when windows are folded back.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaAccording to its materiality, the house is built on double face brick load-bearing walls, using red masonry for the outer face while white painted inside; wooden window and door frames with traditional outer roller blinds as sunscreen when required.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaThe house is conditioned with a geothermal heat pump and an under floor heating system that slightly refreshes the house during summer, avoiding an air conditioned system to dehumidify.

Crude Oil Higher on Middle East Tensions

first_img By Gary Truitt – Aug 15, 2013 Facebook Twitter SHARE Crude Oil Higher on Middle East Tensions Facebook Twitter Home Energy Crude Oil Higher on Middle East Tensionscenter_img SHARE The surge in oil prices “will continue as the Muslim Brotherhood persists in their protests against the Egyptian military,” said Jeffrey Sica, president and chief investment officer of Sica Wealth Management. “The greater the number of those killed in the conflict, the more likely the Suez Canal and [Suez-Mediterranean Pipeline] will be in play.”While Egypt is not a major oil producer, it serves as an important hub for oil transported through the Suez Canal and the Suez-Mediterranean pipeline. In 2012, about 7% of all seaborne traded oil transited through the Suez Canal, the U.S. Energy Information Administration reported. “The likelihood of more broad based involvement (especially in Turkey and Saudi Arabia) in the conflict will cause oil prices to escalate further,” said Sica, who reiterated his year-end targets of $110 for Nymex crude and $115 for Brent. Oil futures scored a gain on Thursday, for a fifth straight session to finish at their highest level in two weeks, as an increase in deadly violence in Egypt raised worries about supplies in the Middle East. But some disappointing U.S. manufacturing data hinted at weak energy demand prospects, limiting oil’s price gains. Crude oil for September delivery  tacked on 48 cents, or 0.5%, to settle at $107.33 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. That was the highest close for a most-active contract since Aug. Prices gained more than 3% over the past four trading sessions.

Mumbai high court allows local police to continue investigation into reporter’s murder

first_img RSF_en RSF demands release of detained Indian journalist Siddique Kappan, hospitalised with Covid-19 In rural India, journalists face choice between covering pandemic and survival Organisation News IndiaAsia – Pacific The Mumbai high court today gave the local police two more weeks, until 6 July, to produce a report on their investigation into the murder of Jyotirmoy Dey, a crime reporter for the daily Mid Day who was gunned down on the outskirts of Mumbai on 11 June.Reporters Without Borders is concerned that the Mumbai police are conducting the investigation.“We think the government should have assigned this investigation to a federal unit right from outset,” the press freedom organization said. “This would have guaranteed a fully impartial investigation and would have demonstrated the government’s determination to solve this case. The Mumbai police are the last ones who should be handling it because Dey had been threatened by one of their former leading members.”According to a report on the India Times website, the Mumbai police are also investigating their own alleged links with the local “oil mafia.” Dey had been threatened by assistant police commissioner Anil Mahabole over an article referring to Mahabole’s alleged ties with local mafia boss Dawood Ibrahim.The Mumbai high court rejected a petition submitted jointly by a group of Indian lawyers and journalists for the investigation to be transferred to the Central Bureau of Investigation, a federal agency that handles particularly sensitive and important cases.An investigative reporter who specialized in covering organized crime, Dey was shot by four men on two motorcycles as he was returning to his home in the north Mumbai suburb of Powai on the afternoon of 11 June.

He was shot five times in the back by four men on two motorcycles as he was returning to his home in the north Mumbai suburb of Powai on 11 June.Dey worked for various newspapers including The Indian Express and Hindustan Times before joining Mid-Day to do special investigations, and had been regarded as an authority on organized crime and the local “oil mafia” for more than two decades.“We offer our condolences to Jyotirmoy Dey’s widow, who is also a journalist, and to his other family members and colleagues, and we urge the authorities to conduct a thorough investigation into his murder, which has all the hallmarks of a premeditated execution,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Recent incidents and acts of violence involving journalists point to a deterioration in the ability of media personnel to operate freely in India. We remind the Indian government of the importance of the media’s role in a democracy, and its duty to ensure protection and justice for all journalists. Dey’s reporting was in the public interest and his death must not go unpunished.”Dey was gunned down as he was returning to his home by motorcycle in the Powai neighbourhood of Hiranandani at around 3:30 p.m. on 11 June. After his four unidentified assailants sped away on their own motorcycles, he was rushed to the nearest hospital in Hiranandani, where he was pronounced dead.Initial reports in the local press suggested that his murder may have been carried out by the oil mafia, whose activities he had so often covered. But officials pointed out that Dey had not targeted any particular gang or mafia in his reporting and had not been working on any big story at the time of his death.Mumbai police commissioner Arup Patnaik said Dey had not filed any complaint about threats to his life. But the Morung Express news website quoted police sources as saying that Dey, who had recently writing a series of articles about the oil mafia, had received threats from “anti-social” elements.Members of the police may also have been involved in his murder. An assistant police commissioner, Anil Mahabole, was suddenly transferred to an insignificant post on 13 June after reportedly being investigated for possible threats against Dey.Mahabole was already subject to several investigations, including one for threatening another Mumbai journalist, Tarakant Dwivedi, who was arrested under the Official Secrets Act on 17 May for reporting a security lapse at a military base near Chhatrapti Shivaji station.Dey and various journalists’ associations recently met the interior minister to complain about Dwivedi’s arrest. The Deccan Chronicle quoted Dwivedi as saying the police commissioner met Dey two weeks before his death, but the subject of their discussion is not known.Dey was reportedly threatened by Mahabole a few years ago after identifying him as one of the Mumbai police officers with links to local mafia don Dawood Ibrahim.Dey wrote two books about the oil mafia, including one, “Zero Dial,” which described the relationship between the police and their mafia informants.Reporters Without Borders released a report on 24 February about organized crime and the fact that it now poses one of the biggest threats to media freedom.

That’s when I came to Troy and to WTBF. I called high school sports, play by play. And, I would hate to hear what I sounded like.”Black said technology back then was nothing more than stringing up a line on a telephone pole.“The quality of the broadcast was not good, to say the least,” he said. “Too much treble or too much bass.”Black was broadcasting back when he had to time the breaks with a stopwatch.“We did all the commercials live,” he said. “Sometimes the audience could hear the pages flap when you turned them to read the next page. All the music was on tapes and it you’d have to be looking for the next tape while the other one was playing. It was a juggling act.”Black said has enjoyed all aspects of radio broadcasting but being a play-by-play announcer for Troy University was as big an education as anything in his life.“I got to travel all over the country,” he said. “I went to Connecticut, Massachusetts, Indiana, Ohio, Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, New York, California, Texas and, if that’s not an education, I don’t know what is. I had a good time, all the time.”From all of his travels and all of his experiences, Black said he learned something very important.“There are good folks and bad folks in every part of the United States,” he said. “I was very fortunate that I got to know so many good folks.”As the play-by-play announcer for WTBF-Radio, Black called high school state championship games and Troy University’s national baseball, basketball and football championship games.Black cited the Troy Red Wave’s NAIA National Football Championship in 1968 and Troy University Division II Baseball National Championships in 1986 and 1987 (his son was on those teams) as standout memories.“One basketball game that was a heartbreaker was the national championship game against Cal-State Bakersfield,” Black said. “The Trojans lost that game but we could have won. Back then, you didn’t have a day between games and we had played late the night before and had to play the championship game at noon. Our team was exhausted. If we’d had a day’s rest, we would have won.”Black shook his head in remembrance of Troy’s game against DeVry, which is the highest scoring game in NCAA basketball history with a final score of 258-141.“The Trojans won but I don’t even like to think about all that,” he said.Black said the Trojans’ national football championships are among his favorite memories. The Trojan won the NAIA national championship in 1968 and the NCAA Division II championships in 1984 and 1987.“Every championship is memorable but the one that was a real nail-biter was the 1984 game against North Dakota State at the Palm Bowl in McAllen, Texas,” Black said. “The Trojans were trailing 17-15 with time expiring, Ted Clem trotted on the field and kicked a 50-yard field goal as time ran out giving the Trojan a 18-17 win. Talk about exciting. Talk about a celebration.”For Black, there have been so many memorable moments but none of them top the victory he announced at the Dairy Queen in Troy.After 50 years “in the business,” Black said he’s not yet ready to “sign off.”“I like what I’m doing so why not keep on doing it,” he said. “So, I’ll just keep going cause there’s more music coming your way.” Published 3:00 am Saturday, January 2, 2016 Skip ON THE AIR: Ralph Black marks milestone anniversary in broadcasting The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Latest Stories You Might Like HISTORIC YEAR: From new roads to new developments, Troy shines Beginnings and endings highlighted 2015 for the City of Troy.

Or maybe the university’s baseball or basketball championships or maybe a high school state championship.But, Black said all bets are off.His most memorable broadcast had nothing to do with sports but it was all about winning. Print Article Black leaned back in his chair, folded his hands and sat thoughtfully before responding.“It was about 10 years ago,” he said. “We were doing a remote broadcast from Dairy Queen here in Troy. There was some kind of fundraiser – I don’t remember. But a young girl, a pretty young girl, Delaney Davenport, came in from Children’s Hospital. She had just learned that she was cancer free. That brought tears to my eyes that day. That topped any broadcast I have ever done. She had won the greatest victory of them all.”Black had taken a few minutes at the close of his early morning broadcast to reflect on his long and storied career in radio broadcasting.

Arctic blast loosening grip on eastern US

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — After a brutally cold Monday, the eastern U.S. will be a bit warmer on Tuesday.Wind chills Monday reached -30 in Albany, New York; -17 in New York City; -16 in Boston and -10 in Philadelphia.Although slightly warmer, wind chills Tuesday morning are still near or below zero in much of the Northeast, with the cold extending all the way into the Southeast. The wind chill in Tampa, Florida Tuesday morning should be in the 40s.A new storm developing in the central U.S. is forecast to move north into Canada, and, as a result, the warmer section of that storm will overtake much of the east, pushing up temperatures over the next 24 to 36 hours. Tampa will see a Wednesday high of near 80 degrees, while New York and Boston will be back up around 40.Much of the Northeast Tuesday morning remains under wind chill alerts, which should subside by late morning as the cold loses its grip with milder air moving in.The new storm in the West, meanwhile, is bringing snow into the Rockies and the upper Midwest. Wind alerts have been issued for this storm from Colorado to Michigan, including a blizzard warning just east of Denver with gusts of up to 45 mph. Heavy snow, as much as 10 inches, is making for dangerous travel conditions Tuesday morning.Throughout Tuesday, bands of heavy snow will be moving into the northern Plains as well as parts of Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin, with snowfall rates of more than 1 inch per hour possible. By early evening, snow may just barely reach Chicago, dropping in bursts during rush hour.The snow is likely to last through the night in the upper Midwest, with the heaviest totals from Iowa to Wisconsin, with more than 6 inches possible locally.Heavy rain also is expected from Texas to Ohio, with localized flooding possible.With colder air traveling behind this storm, parts of the southern U.S. may see a wintry mix on Wednesday and into Thursday. With the storm pulling milder air into the eastern U.S., precipitation in the major Northeast cities should stay as rain, not snow.Another major cold blast could be following this new storm, bringing to the Midwest more brutally cold wind chills by the end of the week.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
