The project departs from two main elements: the site and its users. The construction is located in an old colony inside Guadalajara where irregular landscapes among different levels ocurre to form small canyons which dominate the area. The ground has a rectangular form where the street is located in front and a canyon is located towards the back where a huge tree is placed one level below the street. The house was designed to achieve two main uses: a studio and a home; it was very carefully planned as the users have Japanese roots so its customs were considered and respected. Save this picture!© Carlos Díaz Corona / Fernanda LeonelThe studio is located above the garage, and is characterized by a very generous space between flooring; the other volume (in white color) refers to the house distributed in two levels where the social área, located below, embraces a double height terrace and allows to receive shelter from the great tree that already existed in the site; bedrooms are located on the second floor connected to the studio mezzanine by a small hallway.Save this picture!© Carlos Díaz Corona / Fernanda LeonelSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Carlos Díaz Corona / Fernanda LeonelThe concept is divided into three factors: the structure of the building, its function, and its form. The function must independently respond to the circulation of the spaces which in turn are connected by two gen kan (Japanese traditional entry área); one located inside the garage and the other one by the street level to receive all the visitors leading to a neutral element covered by wood and vinculated to the central inner yard that coexists with all the activities of the house. Save this picture!© Carlos Díaz Corona / Fernanda LeonelThe structure was forged respecting a base beam “H” of 35×35 which assembles the boxes and allows big open spaces to ocurre for both volumes (black and white) covered by a corrugated sheet.Save this picture!© Carlos Díaz Corona / Fernanda LeonelProject gallerySee allShow lessA Floating Timber Bridge Could Connect Greenpoint, Brooklyn and Long Island CityArchitecture NewsSharjah Architecture Triennial to Open as First Major Platform on Middle Eastern Arc…Architecture News Share ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeHernández Silva ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesGuadalajaraMexicoPublished on June 09, 2018Cite: “Studio House KSG / Hernández Silva Arquitectos” [Casa Taller KSG / Hernández Silva Arquitectos] 09 Jun 2018.

Located in Boulogne Billancourt (district 92), on Paris’s western area, 3Box92 is a 2 floor vertical extension constructed on an 19th century existing building.Entirely built with prefabricated systems, the room units are stacked one to another, creating mass superpositions, voids and double heights.Save this picture!© Stephane Malka ArchitectureThis building is entirely sustainable, and has been made with natural and recyclable materials. Its wooden structure is certified from responsibly managed forests, and has been built without any nuisance in our workshops, in extremely short time thanks to our patented panels and unique techniques of prefabrication. These patents were achieved in collaboration with a team of ingeneers and specialists from “Les Toits du Monde”Save this picture!DiagramMoreover, the structure is flexible, built with a system allowing the housing to grow according to the needs of the inhabitants. Thoses systems incorporate panels creating an excellent thermal inertia and a high-performance insulation. This way, modules can be assigned to the most basic needs of architecture such as solar exposition.This whole concept shapes the volumes, the openings but also the treatment of the units; The south facade, opened towards the garden, is buttered with white limewash; its thick walls, double heights, terraces, pool and cantilevers are optimizing solar input and thermal inertia and natural airflow, an original savoir faire inherited from South Mediterranean Architecture.

The Need for Speed, Driving New Planters

first_img By Gary Truitt – Feb 18, 2020 Previous articleIndia Offers Concession on U.S. Farm Goods to Help Reach a DealNext articleSpeed is Name of the Game in New Planters and Blue Jackets Ready to Launch National FFA Week on the HAT Wednesday Morning Edition Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter SHARE The Need for Speed, Driving New PlantersAt the National Farm Machinery Show last week, the Kinze planters were getting a lot of attention. Eric Broadbent, Kinze director of North America sales, says speed is the key feature of their new planter, “We have developed our True Speed, high speed seed meter with a delivery tube, all the way to the trench.”He added that is just the beginning of the improvements to the new planters, all designed for speed. “True Speed enables farmers to double the acres they plant in a day while maintaining precise singulation and seed spacing with various seed shapes and sizes at speeds from 3 to 12 miles per hour.”  True Speed is controlled by Kinze’s Blue Vantage display, which is optimized for planters and offers a highly intuitive user interface. True Speed is paired with Kinze’s True Depth hydraulic downforce, which provides instant row unit response to field conditions. This allows continual ground contact to be maintained for consistent accuracy at all speeds.But speed is not the only trend that is being seen in planters; farmers also want scalability and flexibility. “Farmers may not want to upgrade their planter and move from a 16 row or 24 row planter, but want to be able to cover more ground more quickly,“ said Broadbent. “Staying with smaller planters that can work faster is an option many are considering, given the tight financial conditions in agriculture today.”Speed involves not just getting the crop planted faster; switching crops quickly is also something farmers were asking for. ”When you are in the field, the last thing you want to do is arm wrestle with your seed disc.  With our planter,  you can do this in about a minute per row — it is very quick and easy.” Kinze’s new 4905 planter for corn and soybeans will be available for the 2021 season, and it’s new 4705 planter will be available for the 2021 planting season in a 24-row 30-inch configuration.

Terrorism charge against Gary Donnelly dropped

first_img Main Evening News, Sport and Obituaries Tuesday May 25th By News Highland – December 23, 2010 News A terrorism charge against a leading dissident republican in Derry was dropped at the local Magistrate’s Court yesterday.40-year-old Gary Donnelly, Rathkeele Way, Creggan was charged last August with possessing a mobile “phone for use in the commission or instigation of an act of terrorism”. He was alleged to have committed the offence in September of last year.The charge was linked to the seizure of Gary Donnelly’s mobile phone by police officers following two pipe bomb attacks and a gun attack last year.After he was arrested for the offence, Mr Donnelly described his detention as ridiculous. “I have been set up for my political beliefs. As a sign of how ridiculous this whole thing is I was questioned for hours about the shooting of a former mayor of Derry before they realised that it was a different person.”In court yesterday a prosecution solicitor told District Judge Barney McElholm that the charge against Mr Donnelly was “withdrawn without prejudice”.

NCLT had allowed the appointment of an interim resolution professional and the company was placed under moratorium replacing the board of Ansals.  Justices Bansi Lal Bhat, Acting Chairperson, Anant Bijay Singh, Member (Judicial), Dr. Ashok Kumar Mishra, Member (Technical) relying on the judgment of G. Eswara Rao vs. Stressed Assets Stabilisation Fund and Ors.- MANU/NL/0092/2020 observed that a home buyer cannot file an application under IBC for the execution of a decree and held – “We are of the considered view that the impugned order dated 17th March,2020 initiating Corporate Insolvency Resolution Process against Corporate Debtor cannot be sustained The Adjudicating Authority has landed in grave error in admitting the application of Respondent Nos.1 and 2 under Section 7 who claimed to be the ‘Financial Creditors’ in their capacity as ‘decree-holders’ against the Corporate Debtor on account of non-payment of the amount due under the Recovery Certificate dated 10th August, 2019 issued by the ‘UP RERA’ while execution of decree/ recovery of amount due under Recovery Certificate would not justify triggering of Corporate Insolvency Resolution Process. We are also of the firm view that the application of Respondent Nos. 1 and 2 was moved for execution/ recovery of the amount due under the Recovery Certificate and not for insolvency resolution of the Corporate Debtor. The impugned order suffers from grave legal infirmity and cannot be supported.” The Respondents, who are two house allottees, had paid advance money for two flats in Sushant Golf City, Lucknow. However, as per the clauses of the two agreements between them, Ansals had undertaken to complete the same within two years from the date of commencement of construction on receipt of sanction plan from the authority in 2015. The real estate giant had failed to complete the project by 2017 following which, both allottees approached the Uttar Pradesh Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA), where they were awarded a decree in their favour for ₹73 lakh. A decree is generally, an official order issued by an authority concerned. RERA had also issued a recovery certificate against Ansals. The Respondents then took recourse under IBC to recover their dues. The three member bench ruled that a home buyer cannot be treated as a financial creditor when the real estate company is unable to honour a decree and that they needed to take recourse under civil law court. “The answer to the question whether a decree-holder would fall within the definition of ‘Financial Creditor’ has to be an emphatic ‘No’ as the amount claimed under the decree is an adjudicated amount and not a debt disbursed against the consideration for the time value of money and does not fall within the ambit of any of the clauses enumerated under Section 5(8) of the ‘I&B Code”” it stated. The bench refused to invoke its inherent powers to allow a settlement between the parties as any such move could put the rights of other allottees in jeopardy. It further stated that the Respondents’ application was not maintainable with the amendment of the ‘Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (Amendment) Act, 2020’ which prescribed a minimum threshold for triggering insolvency proceedings, which was a minimum of 100 buyers or 10 per cent of all home-buyers in a project, whichever is lower. The Appellate bench ruled that the management of the company be allowed to function independently and be handed back to its board with immediate effect.

Flow dynamics of the Rutford Ice Stream ice-drainage basin, West Antarctica, from radar stratigraphy

Rutford Ice Stream, West Antarctica, drains a catchment of >45 000 km(2) into the Ronne Ice Shelf through a 26 km wide, 2.4 km deep subglacial trough adjacent to the Ellsworth Mountains. Forty-two per cent of its catchment boundary is common with Pine Island Glacier, where rapid change to ice dynamics is currently underway. These changes may eventually affect adjacent catchments such as Rutford. Radar sounding data were acquired over the Rutford ice-drainage basin that show the internal structure. In particular, distinctive reflector groups were identified that mark the boundaries between four different flow elements. The flow-margin reflector groups include curvilinear events that cross-cut isochrones and are therefore likely to be post-depositional. These reflections may arise from crystal orientation fabrics generated by localized strain in a flow margin. One of the sectors of the ice-drainage basin supplies the largest share (38%) of the ice volume flux through the main trunk of Rutford Ice Stream. This sector may be preferentially affected by continuing surface lowering in the Pine Island Glacier catchment. read more
