The project consist of the remodel of an apartment located in an old building in Barcelona’s Gracia district. The former 90 m2 apartment, was heavily partitioned with up to 6 rooms and gave off a dark appearance with almost no connection with the outdoor space.Save this picture!Cortesía de YLAB ArquitectosThe new owners, a Norwegian couple in love with design and with the city of Barcelona, had understood the potential of its sunny inner courtyard covered with ivy vines, and chose to buy it as their holiday residence. They wanted to transform it in a bright and open space and create a semi-exterior garden to overcome the lack of an outdoor space.Save this picture!Cortesía de YLAB ArquitectosYLAB Arquitectos proposed a concept that frees up the space through important structural changes, opening the façade to the inner courtyard and recovering the historical gallery to revamp it as a gallery-garden.Save this picture!PlanThe new layout revolves around a central open L-shaped space, connected to the gallery-garden and the inner courtyard. The couple’s suite, equipped with large natural wood cabinetry, which integrates a folding table dresser, is placed in the inner area. The suite has its own bathroom that can be accesed as well through a second door from the communal area, serving as guest bath.The layout concept is developed from the segregation of the classical functions into different sub-zones, more aligned to the owners’ particular way of living.Save this picture!Cortesía de YLAB ArquitectosThereby, the kitchen-dining is disintegrated into four sub-zones: the cooking and the washing zones, both in contiguous spaces inside a cabinetry at the front of the communal space; the breakfast zone, in a second angled cabinetry, with hidden space for little kitchen appliances and a removable worktop; and the winery/bar zone, in a third cabinetry closer to the living room. All these zones revolve around this central space, furnished with flexible furniture islands, such as the dining table and the lounge chairs, that compliment each other.The kitchen spaces are integrated into a perimeter cabinetry in natural light oak wood and provided with sophisticated fittings by Blum. Large concealed doors hide the open kitchen workspaces, finished in white Neolith and natural wood. and the large kitchen appliances such as the Novy hood, chosen because of its integration capacity.Save this picture!Cortesía de YLAB ArquitectosThe living room is also divided into an inner zone, furnished with Carl Hansen lounge chairs and table, and a semi-exterior zone in the gallery-garden, furnished with Butterfly chairs and Kettal table. All were delivered by Gunni Trentino and decorated with Serax and Materia Barcelona pieces.In the same way, the office space is divided into a desk area with a computer within the living room shelf system, and a movable desk with storage inside the vestibule area cabinetry.Save this picture!Cortesía de YLAB ArquitectosThe gallery, featuring double windows both to the exterior and the interior, is also an open use space that can be used in different ways. Two large facing custom built planters, in the same natural sand stone as the floor, contain a lush garden that can be taken care of at a distance thanks to the Gardena Smart watering technology, totally concealed inside the planters.Save this picture!Cortesía de YLAB ArquitectosThe apartment achieves maximum storage due to the large floor-to-ceiling cabinetry at the perimeter and in substitution of the partition walls. The oak wood cabinets alternate with white lacquer wall clads, that allow for a flush installation of the swinging doors or hide the sliding doors, and indeed separate the different ambients in a subtle way. Both materials, wood and lacquer, combine to perfection with the protected natural Capri sandstone by Levantina that reflects the natural light and adds a warm cream tone.Save this picture!Cortesía de YLAB ArquitectosThe project features minimalistic designed E22 electrical accessories by Gira that enable an easy control of the lighting system.Project gallerySee allShow lessThesis Works of Daniel Libeskind, Liz Diller and Others Exhibited at the Cooper UnionArchitecture NewsHills / Unit ArkitekturSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Carrer d’Argentona, 08024 Barcelona, SpainLocation to be used only as a reference.

Other recent additions include Leonard Cheshire and Marie Curie Cancer Care. Stephen Ainger, Chief Executive of CAF, said: ‘CAF believes that the momentum for reform of charity law must be maintained by early legislation. To delay would mean kicking real change into the long grass.” Advertisementcenter_img Shirley Scott, Director of the Charity Finance Directors’ Group said: “It’s important not to lose the impetus for change created by the two Government reviews published last year. Several of the recommended changes will facilitate more straight forward accounting, especially in charity trading, which our members will welcome.”Recently, the Charities Bill Coalition wrote to the Prime Minister and his Cabinet Ministers encouraging them to support the reform of charity law and urging them to press their colleagues in the Home Office to commit to a charities Bill in this year’sQueen’s speech.The National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) launched a campaignfor a Charities Bill at the Labour Party Conference in October 2002. The Charities Bill Coalition was launched at NCVO’s Annual Conference in February 2003 at which time the Home Secretary announced that a draft bill would be prepared for pre-legislative scrutiny.

Notre Dame Quiz Bowl team advances to Intercollegiate Championship

first_imgShowcasing their knowledge of topics ranging from Greek mythology to Civil War battles, the Notre Dame Quiz Bowl team went undefeated in the National Academic Quiz Tournaments Great Lakes Sectional, securing their spot in the 2019 Intercollegiate Championship. The Division II team competed against 17 other schools and is one of only 28 teams to be invited to the national competition.“We knew we had a good shot at winning but we also knew we wanted to have a good time,” sophomore Ricky Rivera said. “You kind of have to treat it like every other tournament.”Members of the team who qualified for the Intercollegiate Championship include sophomores Rivera, Alex Hymes, Nicholas Mungan and Spencer Brown and freshman Alexander Kuptel. The competition features a variety of different question categories including literature, science, music, geography and sports. Kuptel said he appreciated the diversity of interests among his teammates.“It’s far better to have a team where each player has deep individual knowledge about a specific subject than a team where everyone is a generalist,” Kuptel said.Mungan said the team encourages each other to follow their interests, especially when studying for classes or reading for pleasure.“More serious teams would actually prescribe subjects for people to study but we don’t like to do that,” Mungan said. “Everybody just studies what they want to learn and what they love.”The Quiz Bowl team meets for two hours twice a week to prepare for upcoming tournaments, running through practice questions and competing against each other to sharpen their skills.Many members of the team have been involved in quiz bowl competitions since middle school. Each person has a unique reason for joining the team, including freshman Grace Ma.“One of the main reasons I like Quiz Bowl is because you learn a lot of stuff in class but you don’t always get to apply the stuff you really care about or more obscure pieces of knowledge,” Ma said. “Classes can be pretty general but in Quiz Bowl, if you know detailed information, you get points for that. I really like that.”Freshman Blaise von Ohlen said he admires the competitive aspect of quiz bowl and he enjoys the reward for his hard work and studying.“There’s a really great payoff when you know something obscure and no one else knows it in the room,” von Ohlen said. “It’s a very rewarding feeling.”During study breaks, senior and one of the team’s co-vice president Alaina Anderson said the team possesses natural chemistry and often feels like a family.“We do a lot of bonding outside of practice,” Anderson said. “We go to Legends Trivia Nights and we all hang out afterward. We go out of our way to make it a very welcoming and friendly group.”The team will arrive at the Intercollegiate Championship in Chicago on Saturday, April 6, with hopes of returning home with a victory, Rivera said.“I can say we’re pretty confident,” Rivera said. “We have a mental toughness where we know we can beat anyone on the schedule.”Tags: intercollegiate championship, Notre Dame Quiz Bowl, quiz bowllast_img read more

Constrictor snakes comments

first_imgFlorida weather is not just a tourist attraction for humans. Large constrictor snakes, like the Burmese python, find the state very comfortable, too. These invasive species are well established in the Florida Everglades and are spreading farther and farther north within Florida.Constrictor snakes can kill and eat anything from white-tail deer to endangered species such as the Key Largo woodrat.To help alleviate this problem, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has proposed to ban the import and interstate transport of nine species of giant constrictor snakes. This includes the boa constrictor, four species of anaconda and four species of python.A public comment period expires May 11, after which, the agency will review its options and consider whether to push forward with the regulations.

2014 Crusader tennis preview: 10 things you need to know…

first_img9. Full roster as of today… Dietra SoberJr. 2. First the good news…The good news is Peyton Adams returns for her fourth year in the program as a senior. She is a two-time state qualifier and one whale of a competitor. As part of the Wellington duo, she and her partner Whaley had a flare for the dramatic which included playing two marathon matches in the Wellington Regional last October in which it took five hours for them to play. Aufdengarten said he might use her in singles. Of course, that is in a perfect world. And we don’t live there. Sat., Sept. 27TOC at Collegiate8 a.m.Various teams Peyton AdamsSr. Sat., Sept. 20Kingman9 a.m.Chaparral, Conway Springs 6. She’s baaaack…As a freshman, Ryleigh Buck – the sister of 2010 doubles state champion Kaitlyn Buck, came in and immediately started as a varsity starter and went 14-1 in her first few weeks. She, however, dropped out to concentrate on her first love – girls softball. But she has returned her junior year and has made an immediate impact.“She hasn’t dropped off one iota,” Aufdengarten said. 8. The schedule…Wellington opens with two home invitationals on Sept. 2 and Sept. 9 and will see significant competition including Buhler , Wichita Collegiate and Conway Springs in either tournament.Wellington opted out of the Chaparral Tournament to play in the Arkansas City tournament on Sept. 18.2014 WELLINGTON TENNIS SCHEDULE Thurs., Sept. 18Arkansas City9 a.m.Various teams Peighton WestmorelandSo.

The infusion of the young…Not since the late 2000s has the WHS tennis program seen an infusion of young players come into the system in one year. Mckenna Adams, a freshman, is currently at the top of the challenge ladder in practice. Lexi Saffell, another freshman, is 5-1 so far and could see varsity playing time.Others to watch: Cajen Shore, a senior; Alexis Hinman, a junior; Noelle Wright, a junior; and Madison Lewellen, a sophomore.

The season ahead…Wellington won’t be accused of playing a soft schedule. The preseason tennis rankings came out and Winfeild, Buhler are in the top eight in Class 4A while Wichita Collegiate is No. 1 in Class 3-2-1A. The thing about Collegiate is, the Spartans could return to Class 4A when enrollment figures are released in September.Of course, Wellington’s state tournament aspirations depends on the Regional Tournament draw. And that won’t be released until mid-September.Follow us on Twitter. Ryleigh BuckJr. Madison LewllenSo. Mercedes VazquezJr. Tues., Sept. 9Wellington3 p.m.W. Collegiate, Chaparral, Kingman. 4. Other doubles team players from 2013… The other starting 2013 doubles team will be back and appears to be intact… providing Aufdengarten doesn’t juggle the lineup… which he will. Maggie Fink is now a senior and Madison Adams is a junior. The two players as Wellington’s No. 2 doubles team accumulated a 21-11 record in 2013, and just missed qualifying for state in an extremely competitive regional. 1. Where we last left off…Wellington head girls tennis coach Brian Aufdengarten brings back five of the top six girls on the 2013 squad. Wellington had one doubles entry in the state tennis tournament in Topeka last October. Kelsey Whaley, who qualified with Peyton Adams, graduated with a 23-9 doubles record in 2013.Peyton Adams Noelle WrightJr. Kayma BrandSo. VARSITY: Sat. Sept. 13Pratt9 a.m.Chaparral, Kingman, Ulysses Madison AdamsJr. 5. Returning singles player…Last year’s singles players in regional play were Auni Williams and Dietra Sober who return as juniors this year. They are returning, but they are far from guaranteed a starting spot in 2014.“In football, and basketball and in volleyball, naming the starters is the opinion of the coach,” Aufdengarten said. “That’s not the case in tennis. You have to beat the girls who are in front of you.”And in the first two weeks of practice thus far for the Wellington tennis team there has been some heady competition. Aufdengarten estimates that 10 players could be starting in the varsity lineup. Abby LoweFr. Laken KimballSo. Thur. Sept. 11Andover Central3 p.m.Augusta, Buhler, Circle, Eldorado, Neodesha, Haven Shilynn GustasonFr. 3. Now the bad news …Adams suffered a concussion in an off-the-court work-related accident. She won’t start the season and is questionable for the rest of the season depending on her recovery. Not only is that devastating news for the competitive senior, but her absence would be huge to WHS’ post season aspirations if she was not to return.“If (the doctors) clear her, we will not be in a hurry to bring her back,” Aufdengarten said. “Her health is too important to us.” by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — 10 things you need to know about the 2014 Wellington High School tennis squad… Jaylynn LunaJr. Close Forgot password?

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast – December 19th

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Ryan Martin 171219No change in the outlook today. We still look pretty good for the next few days. We dry out, stay above normal for temps, and see better sunshine chances through Thursday. Winds go west at a moderate clip today, and stay like that through Thursday as wellFriday, winds turn more southwest, and clouds move in. Friday itself we do not see an exceptional amount of precipitation – only a few hundredths to a tenth or two over about 40% of the state. But, that action ramps up overnight Friday night through Saturday morning, where we see rains of .25”-.75” over 90% of the state. There still a threat of thunderstorm action down in far southern Ohio, near the river. In those areas, we can see some rain totals pushing closer to 1”.For the rest of Saturday and most of Sunday we dry back down, but we see much colder air starting to push in from the NW. Precipitation continues to flow up the old, slowing, stalling frontal boundary over KY and areas south, but at this point, we do not expect any of it to get into the state. Sunday is very cold in the north, but only slightly below normal in the south. Christmas day continues to be the wild card. We actually have good cold air in over all of the state, and the track of moisture from the southwest actually sets us up much better for Christmas Day snow than our neighbors to the west. Right now, we think we need to be on the lookout for anywhere from a couple of inches all the way through 10 inches for Christmas. This means a large part of the state may end up with white Christmas potential. The map above is a map of 24 hour snow totals from the night of Christmas Eve through sunset Christmas night. This map is NOT AN OFFICIAL FORECAST!! This is a forecast that we will be refining as we move through the rest of this week, but for now, we need to start planning on some inclement weather on Christmas Day. IT may not be enough to cause major problems in all areas, but it could cause some issues in parts of the state, and it will be nothing like what we have for the next couple of days either. And still, even with the potential for snow here, perhaps the bigger story will be the brutal cold for next week. From Tuesday right on through the end of the week, temps will be well below normal, and will be the coldest of the season to this point.In the extended period, we see another strong storm circulation developing in the southern plains for the New Year’s weekend. Current track is far south, but we continue to watch this one for an adjusting track that may start off 2018 with a significant winter event. Stay tuned!last_img read more
