The vertical volume—orange, like the penthouse containers—intersects the carriage house and organizes kitchen, bathrooms, mechanical space and the stairs, the incline of which generates all of the diagonal cuts. This volume also separates the space in two—entrance/mud room in the front with kitchen/dining/living space on the rear at the ground level, and master and kids bedrooms at the second level.Save this picture!© Danny BrightProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Sociology of Coliving: How WeLive Creates a “Third Place”ArticlesCall for Entries: BCI Asia Interior Design AwardsBuilt Projects & Masterplans Share Houses Photographs:  Danny Bright Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/795697/irving-place-carriage-house-lot-ek Clipboard Manufacturers: Agape, Bosch, Gaggenau, matt ganon studio LA, wendell castle “COPY” CopyAbout this officeLOT-EKOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentExtensionJersey CityNew YorkUnited StatesPublished on September 22, 2016Cite: “Irving Place Carriage House / LOT-EK” 22 Sep 2016.

The project comprised alterations and additions to an existing red brick cottage in O’Connor. The primary components of the client brief included improved access to natural daylight & connection to rear yard, additional living spaces, good passive thermal performance, and flexibility of use. The existing cottage was renovated to provide new flooring finishes, new double glazed windows, wall and roof insulation and re-programming of some interior rooms. Strategically located skylights were added to increase natural daylight exposure and new roof tiles and sarking were installed. The existing house was largely retained in terms detailing and trims, The northern portion of the old house was re-programmed into a parents wing comprising bedroom, robes and ensuite. The southern portion of the house is used as living and “flexible” spaces that can become a study, spare bedroom, work out room etc.Save this picture!© The Guthrie ProjectSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© The Guthrie ProjectThe new works are located along the southern side of the block to preserve northern yard. The wing runs parallel to a stand of existing mature Elm Trees. There was a commitment by the project team to keep the Elms for their visual and cooling qualities. To preserve the health of the Elm trees, the new wing was elevated and built on lengthened piered footings with concrete edge beams. This reduced the impact on the Elm roots, and allows water and air to flow around root zones. Roof water from the new wing runs into an agg drain that discharges water around the Elm tree root zones. The Elms form a beautiful back drop to the new wing when looking south from the rear yard, and also provide a landscape vista through the new highlight windows.The new wing is conceived as a distinctly different architecture that allows for a clear preservation of the proportions and readability of the original cottage. The new wing includes kitchen, living & dining, laundry, 2 bedrooms and bathroom. The architecture is expressive of function with a skillion roof lifting to the north to allow excellent solar access to new living spaces. The living spaces can open along the northern edge to provide convenient and flexible access to the rear yard. High light windows along the southern side allow excellent cross ventilation and glimpses of the mature Elm tree stand (without compromising privacy)Save this picture!© The Guthrie ProjectThe project also takes serious account of solar passive and sustainability principles. The new wing includes an insulated burnished concrete slab which provides excellent isolated thermal mass for use during winter and summer. Large eaves and external motorized blinds allow for summer sun to be kept off the slab when required. High level windows on northern and southern sides allow for good ventilation and night purging. Electric heat pumps are used for domestic hot water and infrastructure has been built in for a future PV array. The retention of the elms and incorporation of passive rain harvesting for their roots assists in reducing on block temperature during summer.Save this picture!© The Guthrie ProjectProject gallerySee allShow lessPrivate Villa JUGE / AtSpace ArchitectsSelected ProjectsSummmoru House / NOMALSelected Projects Sharelast_img read more

New York protest says, ‘Odessa, Donbass, we are with you’

first_imgNew York protest remembers Odessa’s martyrs.WW photo: Greg ButterfieldA sudden cold snap and whipping winds couldn’t keep fired-up activists from protesting at the U.S. military recruitment center in Times Square on Nov. 2 to demand, “U.S. out of Ukraine!”They came to remember the anti-fascists massacred by neo-Nazis at Odessa’s House of Trade Unions six months before, and to stand in solidarity with the Donbass People’s Republics of Donetsk and Lugansk on the day of their first elections since declaring independence from Ukraine.Protesters called for an independent investigation of the Odessa massacre, an immediate halt to direct and indirect U.S. aid to the Kiev government of oligarchs and neo-Nazis, and an end to NATO expansion aimed at destabilizing Russia.Officially, 48 people are said to have died on May 2, when fascist gangs bused into the multinational port city of Odessa attacked a protest camp set up by opponents of the U.S.-backed coup in Kiev. Armed neo-Nazis chased activists into the House of Trade Unions, and then set the building on fire. They shot people through the windows and beat to death others trying to flee the inferno.Odessa anti-fascists believe that many more died than the official tally.Echoing the chants of courageous mourners who earlier that day broke through police lines to reach the site of the tragedy in Odessa, the Times Square protesters chanted, “Odessa, Donbass, we are with you!”Despite the sharp winds, passersby took leaflets and many stopped to listen to speakers.Greg Butterfield, coordinator of the Ukraine Antifascist Solidarity Committee of the International Action Center, said: “We demand to know what the U.S. role was in the Odessa massacre. Both Democrats and Republicans in Washington have been deeply involved in every aspect of the far-right coup in Ukraine and the war against the people of Novorossiya,” as the union of the people’s republics is known.“Just like in Ferguson after the police murder of Mike Brown, in Odessa the guilty have been protected while the survivors of the massacre are repressed,” Butterfield said.“After Congress and President Obama agreed to cut almost $10 billion in food assistance to hungry families here, the U.S. turned around and pledged $10 billion in loans to the junta in Ukraine. There is a direct correlation between U.S. imperialist attacks on the people at home and abroad,” he said.The commemoration in Times Square was a truly international event, with activist-immigrants from Central America, Iran, Pakistan, Ukraine, Russia and Belarus rallying alongside those born in the U.S. Many held signs with photos of youths who died in Odessa and other recent young victims of U.S.-backed fascism and bigotry, like Robert Serra, a Venezuelan socialist leader, and Jennifer Laude, a transgender Filipina.At the end of the rally, the names of the known Odessa victims were read out. After a moment of silence, black balloons were released in honor of the anti-fascists who fell on May 2.For more on the Odessa massacre, see Workers World’s interview with survivor Alexei Albu of Borotba: tinyurl.com/nkc9n3wFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

What Will the End of the Year Bring?

first_img What Will the End of the Year Bring? SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News What Will the End of the Year Bring? Facebook Twitter Previous articleSeed Consultants Market Watch 9:51 update with Gary Wilhelmi 12/24/2012Next articleOil Futures Add to Losses as Fiscal Cliff Nears Andy Eubank It’s highly unlikely that Congress and President Obama will come up with a fiscal cliff bill to deal with the national deficit – and even more unlikely a farm bill will be included. However – House Ag Ranking Member Collin Peterson says he is not worried about a bill being passed before next year. With a failed plan by Speaker of the House John Boehner last week – there’s no clear plan for the Senate and President Obama. The House has already adjourned – but Senators will return to Capitol Hill on Thursday – leaving four work days before the end of the year – and the end of the 112th Congress. If the House is needed back – Boehner says he will reconvene – but the House Ag and Senate Ag-passed farm bills will die in less than a week without any action – and that brings even more problems.Without a new farm bill or an extension of the current law – ag policy will revert back to 1949 policy – which would raise milk prices significantly. Based on that fact – Senate Ag Chair Debbie Stabenow says a fiscal cliff deal needs to be passed with a farm bill attached. Peterson objects to the term going over the cliff because if everything expires – he says nothing dramatic happens. Taxpayers’ withholding will increase a bit – according to Peterson – but the sequestration cuts don’t immediately go into effect. Even though the U.S. Department of Agriculture has to implement 1949 law on January 1st without a new or extended bill – Peterson notes some economists have said it shouldn’t affect dairy prices until May or June.Source: NAFB News Service By Andy Eubank – Dec 25, 2012 SHARE Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

RSF hopes Raif Badawi will be freed very soon

first_imgNews to go further Saudi ArabiaMiddle East – North Africa Religious intolerance Organisation November 30, 2015 – Updated on May 1, 2016 RSF hopes Raif Badawi will be freed very soon Saudi media silent on RSF complaint against MBS Reporters Without Borders (RSF) has learned that Raif Badawi, a young Saudi blogger who was awarded the 2014 RSF Press Freedom Prize in the Netizen category, could be released soon. Help by sharing this information Receive email alerts Saudi ArabiaMiddle East – North Africa Religious intolerance April 28, 2021 Find out more RSF has been campaigning for many months for the release of Badawi, who has been sentenced to ten years in prison and 1,000 lashes.The possibility of a pardon was mentioned at the end of last week by the Swiss foreign ministry’s secretary of state after an official visit to Saudi Arabia. He said Badawi’s sentence had been suspended while a proposed pardon was being considered. RSF hopes that the pardon materializes and that its many appeals to the Saudi king will finally lead to Badawi’s release.“The release of the winner of the 2014 RSF Press Freedom Prize and the 2015 Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought would send a strong message to the international community,” said Alexandra El Khazen, the head of RSF’s Middle East desk.“We urge the Saudi authorities to approve Raif Badawi’s pardon and we hope that we will soon be able to see this young blogger released and reunited with his family. We meanwhile remain vigilant and call for the international pressure to be maintained.”As part of its campaign, RSF launched a petition for Badawi’s release in December 2014 that has gathered more than 50,000 signatures.Badawi was arrested in June 2012 and was sentenced in May 2014 under Saudi Arabia’s cyber-crime law to 10 years in prison, 1,000 lashes and a heavy fine for “insulting Islam” on the discussion website he created.His case is emblematic of the crackdown on dissidents in Saudi Arabia.Nine journalists and citizen-journalists are currently detained in Saudi Arabia, which is ranked 164th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

However, the Bar Council of India withheld the results of nine exam centres, including Vishakhapattanam (petitioner’s exam centre), citing complaints of irregularities. The candidates of those exam centres were asked to re-appear in the AIBE 2020.On May 16, the BCI notified August 16 as the date for AIBE 2020.  Later, the BCI decided on July 30 to postpone the AIBE indefinitely.In this backdrop, the petitioner states that the postponement of AIBE- which happened twice in his case- has caused immense prejudice to several advocates like him, as they are precluded from filing vakalat. It is also pointed out that the lack of AIBE qualification made them ineligible for various welfare funds announced by the State Government for practising advocates.The petition filed through Advocate Solomon Raju states :”AIBE exam has become a great hurdle to all advocates who are not able to complete as of September 2019 on account of mistake of 1st respondent. Since enrolled advocates  couldn’t complete their AIBE-XIV Exam, they were not bought under the shelter and welfare schemes of the state government as well as state bar council. As a present scenario Advocates who are supposed to attend AIBE –XV exam which is postponed without any further date, would be losing their valuable time in their professional life. The notification dated 30.07.2020 issued by the respondent has kept the professional lives of many advocates including my self in conundrum. The respondent notification dated 30.07.2020 could cause irreperable loss and injury to young advocates like me, since AIBE Exam is a open book exam, due to corona the respondent is not able to conduct the exam. It shall declare that all the advocates enrolled on the rolls of the respective state bar councils as AIBE qualified candidates”. The petition points out that the BCI has allowed Universities to promote all law students up to the fourth year based on previous exams and internal marks. The petitioner urges BCI to adopt similar approach vis-a-vis AIBE.The petition also highlights that the COVID-19 scenario is worsening, with India reporting more than 17 lakh cases and Andhra Pradesh crossing 1.7 lakh cases. So, it is not advisable to hold AIBE in such a situation.”The 1st respondent shall reconsider its decision with respect to conducting AIBE exam which is a open book exam and exempt AIBE Exam for the year 2020 and declare all the enrolled advocates as AIBE qualified in view of COVID-19″, prays the petitioner.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Here are the 10 biggest office leases in Brooklyn and Queens of 2020

first_imgChris Whittle and Tishman Speyer’s Rob Speyer with a rendering of The Wheeler at 181 Livingston Street (Photos via Getty Images and The Whittle School)Signs of a pandemic-fueled market slowdown are obvious when looking at the top office leases in Brooklyn and Queens this year — six out of the 10 deals in The Real Deal’s ranking closed in January and February.But in the few months before the pandemic took hold, several large leases were signed. The sum of top 10 deals in 2020 was 1.44 million square feet, a 20 percent increase from the 2019 total. That was mostly thanks to Whittle School’s 620,000-square-foot lease in Downtown Brooklyn, which was inked in early February. Amazon came in second with a 300,000-square-foot lease in Queens — the only deal in that borough that made the top 10 — that was signed in late February.The full list of 10 largest office leases in Brooklyn and Queens for 2020 is as follows:1. 181 Livingston Street, Downtown Brooklyn | Whittle School & Studios | 620,000 square feetWhittle School & Studios signed a 20-year lease to occupy the entirety of the Wheeler, a 10-story new development built atop Macy’s department store on Fulton Street. Asking rents at the building, developed by Tishman Speyer, were between $60s and $70s a square foot when The Real Deal first reported on the negotiations in March 2019.The Brooklyn school is part of the global network of schools operated by Chris Whittle’s for-profit educational organization. It’s slated to open sometime in 2021.2. 66-26 Metropolitan Avenue, Glendale | Amazon | 300,000 square feetThe e-commerce giant has signed a lease to take over the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s 109,000-square-foot space, plus the remaining 190,000 square feet of vacant space at Rentar Plaza, a 1.6-million-square-foot office, retail and warehouse complex owned by Long Island-based Rentar Development.It was just one piece of Amazon’s expansion spree in New York in 2020: The company closed on its $978 million purchase of the 660,000-square-foot former Lord & Taylor building in Midtown from WeWork, and leased millions of square feet of warehouse space in the outer boroughs.Read moreFor-profit Whittle School inks lease for Tishman Speyer’s The WheelerAmazon signs 300K-sf lease in Middle VillagePrologis buying Sunset Park property teed up as new City Harvest HQ Full Name* Message* Tags2020 in ReviewbrooklynCommercial Real EstateOffice Leasingoffice marketQueens Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlinkcenter_img 3. 150 52nd Street, Sunset Park | City Harvest | 150,000 square feetThe food rescue nonprofit signed a triple-net lease in January with DH Property, which had secured the site from Mark Karasick of 601W Companies. The site was then purchased by Prologis, a mega warehouse landlord, for $40.5 million. City Harvest plans to consolidate its operations (formerly located in Long Island City) and its corporate headquarters at the Brooklyn property.4. 2 Hanson Place, Downtown Brooklyn | National Grid | 87,000 square feetThe London-headquartered gas and electricity provider signed an 87,000-square-foot lease on the 11th and 12th floors of the Atlantic Terminal office building, which is owned by Brookfield Properties. Asking rents at the building are around $60 per square foot.5. 124 Ninth Street, Gowanus | Mother New York | 61,000 square feetLondon-based advertising agency Mother signed a lease to move its New York office from Hell’s Kitchen to Roulston House Gowanus. The property formerly housed hundreds of artists’ studios, but was redeveloped into a 200,000-square-foot mixed-use complex a few years ago by Industrie Capital Partners. Mother paid $50 per square foot for its new space.6. 186 North Sixth Street, Williamsburg | Quarters | 55,000 square feetThe German co-living firm Quarters signed a lease with Duke Equities to open a Williamsburg location, which began operations this month with 160 bedrooms in suites and duplex units. Duke Equities purchased the trio of buildings on North 6th Street, spanning about 68,700 square feet, from Boricua College in 2018 for $31.1 million.7. 523 Fulton Street, Downtown Brooklyn | Brooklyn Hospital Center | 51,226 square feetThe hospital inked a 51,226-square-foot lease at RMC Assets’ 114,000-square-foot, three-story office and healthcare building in Downtown Brooklyn.

Identifying migratory pathways used by Rusty Blackbirds breeding in Southcentral Alaska

first_imgWe placed light-level geolocators on 17 Rusty Blackbirds (Euphagus carolinus) in 2009 to track their migrations from nest sites near Anchorage, Alaska to wintering areas and back. We recaptured three of these birds in 2010 and found they departed breeding areas during the first half of September, spent 72–84 days migrating to overwintering areas, but only 16–30 days on their northward migration to Alaska. Birds took similar Central Flyway routes on southward and northward migrations, which were not previously described for this species. The birds used a series of stopover sites across the prairie region from southern Saskatchewan to Iowa over a 4 to 5 week period on their southward migration to wintering areas that spanned from South Dakota to northern Louisiana. We found upon recapture in 2010, the geolocator attachment harnesses had abraded the surrounding feathers on all three birds. This coupled with the low return rate (18%) for instrumented birds indicates a better harness method must be developed before this technology is more widely used on Rusty Blackbirdslast_img read more
