This weekend house located in the Jurica Campestre community seeks to redefine the concept of a retreat home by defragmenting its core program in 4 main volumes. The house is conceived as a central house and 3 independent suites or volumes. This configuration of modules makes the house central core a plaza where one can enjoy a variety of outdoor activities. These main spaces of the house create an interior-exterior relationship where the interior is well connected to nature and its surroundings, creating this way its own context.Save this picture!Floor Plan+ 21The house form the beginning was placed on a 5m by 5m grid and this helped position and have flexibility during the creative process where one could reconfigure the relationship between volumes. The name Casa 4.1.4 derived from its massing consisting of one central house, 4 main volumes, one central plaza and four plazas or patios.Save this picture!© Rafael Gamo+ 21The project takes a starting point by placing the 4 components of the house on the site. The main house of approximately 155 sq.meters, is lived from a central courtyard that acts as a  distribution of program such as kitchen living, dining, and main bedroom, as well as filters light to all the public areas. The suites (cubes) of just 25 sq.meters makes a playful shadow and depth of field and  creates its own context by being placed around the central plaza, these rooms allocate a bedroom, a bath, dressing room, panty-coffee space so they can operate independently form the house and provide privacy.Save this picture!AxonometricThese volumes having unobstructed views generate intimacy among them.

Bayer’s Carbon Initiative Pilot Program Met With Overwhelming Interest

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Bayer’s Carbon Initiative Pilot Program Met With Overwhelming Interest Bayer’s Carbon Initiative Pilot Program Met With Overwhelming Interest By Ashley Davenport – Nov 10, 2020 Facebook Twitter Photo: Bayer YouTubeAudio Playerhttps://hoosieragtoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/HATBayer-Carbon-Initative-Pilot-Program-Met-With-Overwhelming-Interest.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Bayer is working with farmers to develop a new revenue opportunity through carbon.The Carbon Initiative pilot program began in the U.S. this summer. According to Chad Bilby, North America Commercial Experimentation Lead with Bayer, says its set to accomplish three things.“One was can we provide an incentive to farmers that allows them to adopt new agronomic practices that sequester more carbon in the soil,” said Bilby. “Two, can we actually measure and validate that amount of carbon that’s captures through those practices—not only on individual farms, but actually down to the individual field.”And part three is divided into two parts.“Our long-term approach is really aimed at establishing a carbon marketplace where carbon credits can be sold and provide sustainable new revenue streams for farmers,” said Bilby. “The short-term approach in this pilot was to offer a simple per acre incentive for farmers that can participate in our pilot this year.”Bilby said pilot this year focused on corn and soybean producers in nine states.“We focused on climate smart practices and would farmers adopt them as new practice,” he said. “It’s defined as cover crops, no till and strip till.”If a grower meets those requirements, Bayer will give them a $10/acre incentive.“The other piece is they need to be on Climate Field View,” added Bilby. “That’s an opportunity to get more out of the technology they already have. It allows farmers to very easily share the data and information we need for part of this pilot.”Enrollment for fall 2020 has been overwhelming, said Bilby.“We’ve actually exceeded our expectations, and we feel we’re on track to exceed our original acre targets,” he said. “We have a waiting list for the 2020 program, and we’re looking to actually open up another enrollment window in the spring of 2021.”Bilby says Bayer is looking for more market opportunities to sequester more carbon and new products.“At the end of the day, the true measure of this program’s success is going to rest in the hands of the farmer.” SHARE SHARE Facebook Twitter Previous articleLame-Duck Session Brings Hope of More COVID Relief for AgricultureNext articleAdditional Aid Will Help Farmers Survive Pandemic Ashley Davenportlast_img read more

Four women get jail terms in crackdown on “cyber-feminists”

The ‘national security’ charges on which these four activists were convicted are utterly absurd.”Fariba Davoudi Mahajer, a former contributor to several pro-reform newspapers that are now closed and to the Wechange, Zanestan and Meydaan websites, received a sentence of one year in prison and a suspended sentence of three years in prison for “violating national security.”Sussan Tahmassebi, an activist and editor of the English-language version of the Wechange website, was given six months in prison, plus a further 18 months that were suspended, for “meeting in collusion with the aim of violating national security.”Six-month jail terms combined with suspended sentences of another two and a half years in prison were passed on Noushin Ahmadi Khorasani, editor of the magazines Jense Dovom (Second Sex) and Fasle Zana (Woman’s Season), and Parvin Ardalan, a journalist who writes for Jense Dovom and various websites including Zanestan.The four activists, who are still free pending the outcome of the appeals they have filed, had participated in an online campaign for “A million signatures to get laws that discriminate against women changed.” They also took part in a demonstration in Tehran on 12 June 2006 that ended with dozens of arrests. During the march, they brandished banners with such slogans as “We are women, humans and citizens, but we have no rights” and “Women’s rights are human rights.”Their convictions have coincided with a government campaign for the “dress laws” to be respected. As they do every spring, the police have been harassing women who wear brightly-coloured clothes or cloaks that are too waisted, who are showing too much hair or who are displaying their ankles.Iran is on the Reporters Without Borders list of “13 Internet Enemies”.

Intelligence agents beat up nine newspaper photographers

first_img BangladeshAsia – Pacific February 26, 2021 Find out more BangladeshAsia – Pacific Reporters Without Borders condemns the beating of nine news photographers as a “scandalous and inexcusable” violation of press freedom. “How can intelligence agents assume the right to beat up journalists with complete impunity, while police look on with amusement,” the organisation asks. Follow the news on Bangladesh News to go further Reporters Without Borders voiced outrage today at the beatings which nine photographers with national daily newspapers received from members of Bangladesh’s National Security Intelligence (NSI) yesterday in Dhaka. All of the photographers were injured, three of them seriously.”This use of violence is a scandalous and inexcusable violation of press freedom,” the organisation said. “How can intelligence agents assume the right to beat up journalists with complete impunity, while police look on with amusement. We urge the Bangladeshi authorities to restore order in their security services, which have clearly forgotten what their duties are supposed to be.”The injured photographers are Mir Ahmed Miru of Janakantha, Anisur Rahman of the Daily Star, Wahid Hassan Raja of Bhorer Kagoj, A.K.M. Musa of Sangram, Masud Parvez Milon of the Financial Express, Hasanuzzaman Tarun, Enamul Kabir and Sheikh Mamun of Janakantha and Mohammad Sharif of Naya Digonto.The violence began when Kabir tried to take photos of graffiti on the outside of the NSI building denouncing government corruption. Intelligence agents dragged him inside and gave him a beating. Learning of this, the other newspaper photographers rushed to NSI headquarters where they too were beaten by NSI staff.Passers-by, rickshaw drivers and street vendors tried to help the photographers while police, who had arrived in two police vans, looked on without intervening. “We asked the police to help us, but they took no notice and just laughed,” said Rahman, who was one of the two to receive the most serious injuries. The other two were Raja and Miru. All three were hospitalised.

Walker drops 46 points in Hornets demolition of Grizzlies

The Hornets did so on a night in which they were without the suspended Dwight Howard.Walker scored 17 points in the first quarter, 18 in the second quarter and 11 in the third quarter before he was replaced for the final time with 1:48 left in the third. He hit 13 of 18 shots overall, including 10 of 14 on 3-pointers, and was 10 of 10 on free throws in 28 minutes.“Tonight I shot the ball really well,” Walker said. “My teammates did a great job of getting me open. We just had to pick up our games because we knew Dwight wasn’t playing. I thought we did a great job doing that.”It came one day after Howard’s 32-point, 30-rebound performance helped Charlotte rally from a 23-point deficit to win 111-105 at Brooklyn. But in the process, Howard was whistled for his 16th technical foul of the season, which meant he had to serve a one-game suspension on Thursday night.It was Walker’s third-highest scoring game of his career; The 6-foot-1 two-time NBA All-Star had a career-high 52 points against Utah in a 124-119 double-overtime win in January 2016, and had 47 points in a 123-120 loss at Chicago in November 2017.ADVERTISEMENT Cabuyao City rising above the ashes through volunteerism Charlotte Hornets’ Kemba Walker (15) celebrates with Willy Hernangomez (41) during the second half of an NBA basketball game against the Memphis Grizzlies in Charlotte, N.C., Thursday, March 22, 2018. (AP Photo/Chuck Burton)CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Kemba Walker was surprised to learn his Charlotte Hornets had just recorded the sixth-largest win in NBA history.“That’s not something you see every day,” Walker said after his 46 points led the Hornets to a 140-79 victory Thursday night over the Memphis Grizzlies. “We played well. We knew these guys were short-handed with no Mike Conley and Marc Gasol, who are two awesome players.

It’s deserving for both guys.”Wayne Selden scored 18 points for Memphis (19-53). Conley (left heel) and Gasol (rest) remain out with injuries for the Grizzlies.“Tonight we put on a performance that no one should be proud of and you can’t defend it,” interim coach J.B. Bickerstaff said.The Hornets delighted the crowd of 15,033 at Spectrum Center — and themselves — in rolling to the big victory.“They were out there just laughing,” Memphis guard Tyreke Evans said of the Hornets. “It was embarrassing. The whole thing. We’ve got to just wash this one away and just come back next game and be ready to play.”TIP INS:Grizzlies: Bickerstaff was on the Charlotte coaching staff when the city returned to the NBA in 2004 and nicknamed Bobcats. Then a 25-year-old assistant coach to his father Bernie Bickerstaff, J.B. Bickerstaff was the youngest coach in the NBA at that time.Hornets: Howard is one of only three players in the last 20 years (Andrew Bynum on April 11, 2012, and Kevin Love on Nov. 12, 2010) to get 30 rebounds in a game.LOOKING AT HISTORYBickerstaff was a Minnesota Timberwolves assistant in 2010 when Love was the last player to record a 30-30 NBA game before Howard did so on Wednesday night in Brooklyn. “I was actually with Kevin Love in Minnesota when he had the 31 (points) and 30 (rebounds) versus the Knicks and its mind blowing to think that it can happen,” Bickerstaff said before Thursday’s game. “And the effort that you have to put in to go it because people know what you’re doing at that point. So there are two guys that are boxing you out, three guys that are chipping at you, small guys on your legs. So you have to be relentless and you have to be motivated to go out and get it done – and then to go score 30 points on top of that. There’s an energy level that’s exhausting, but elite guys can do it.”NOT TRYING FOR FIFTY?Walker came out with 1:48 left in the third quarter and didn’t return, though Spectrum Center fans broke in “Kemba!” chants the rest of the game. Was there a chance he would return? “Nah,” Walker said. “I was tired and it was a back-to-back.”UP NEXT Knicks: Host Lakers on Saturday night.Hornets: Visit Mavericks on Saturday night.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil LATEST STORIES In Liverpool, Man United sees the pain and path to recovery Conor McGregor seeks to emerge from controversy in UFC comeback View commentslast_img read more

“Operation Safeway” in full swing in B Division

first_imgAs “Operation Safeway” enters its second week, police in B Division, in Region 6 (East Berbice-Corentyne) have been boosted to ensure the latest strategy to make the roads safer is a success.“Operation Safeway was launched on September 16, and since that time, there has been a notable decrease in all categories of road accidents,” the police said in a release.Radar guns, breathalyser kits and other traffic enforcement gear that will assist in nabbing drunk drivers and others who break the traffic laws in BerbicePolice in B Division intensify their vigilance under “Operation Safeway”Meanwhile, in Berbice the traffic division received several radar guns and breathalyser kits, among other gear that will help to curb fatal accidents on the road.Officer-in-charge of Traffic Superintendent Budnarine Persuad said the division received six radar guns and four breathalyser kits among other traffic gear to help nab drunk drivers and those who break the speed limit. He reminded that Operation Safeway was introduced to curb rising road fatality.In the country between January 1 and September 14, 2016, a total of 89 fatal accidents were recorded. This is compared to 67 for the corresponding period last year.
