Breathtaking views of the surrounding mountain ranges and valleys, and dramatically steep hills characterize the site located in Feldis (Switzerland), 1500 meters above sea level. The subtle manipulation of a simple timber structure nestled along the contour lines of the hill, anchors it solidly in its rocky surrounding in a manner akin to a solitary rock outcrop displaced after a rock fall. Save this picture!© Dominique Marc WehrliThe seemingly monolithic holiday home appears once narrow and light, then wide and heavy, assuming a different aspect depending on the perspective from which it is viewed. Opening and closing the generously proportioned venetian blinds directly effects the external expression of the house. The simple internal organization can be interpreted in two ways. Firstly, the planning allows each room to serve the other, in an open hierarchy where both the kitchen and the storage units therein become part of this continuum. The second interpretation is an open, living unit on three levels, a space that flows uninterrupted from the entrance over the cascade of steps to the living areas. Save this picture!© Dominique Marc WehrliA negative space, directly behind the outer layer of the skin, wedged as it were between, under and over the more intimate sleeping quarters structures the dynamic and the static spatial zones of the living sculpture. The elegant tuning and stretching of the structure allows the rooms internally to take full advantage of the spectacular alpine panorama. These rooms, varying in size, and geometry are designed to maximize spatial experience, each window framing a precise picture of the surrounding landscape. The occupants actively change the building’s external expression through the opening and shutting of the generously proportioned window shutters. Save this picture!© Dominique Marc WehrliThe environmental demands particular to the site, and the building process both determined the choice of timber as building material The choice of timber framing guaranteed the desired flexibility in planning and construction, whilst structurally, the characteristics of timber framing are complemented by the advantages of massive construction. The need for a simple, sporadically occupied holiday home meant the acoustic insulation could be minimised. Considerable reductions in the thicknesses of internal cladding materials not only simplified the construction but also led to considerable spatial gains internally. Save this picture!© Dominique Marc WehrliThe cantilevered roof above the terrace consciously stretches the construction system to its limit, the former being made possible by the full integration of the glazing element into the construction. The desired effect of a simple holiday home characterised by spatial variability is further strengthened by the rawness of the timber cladding. Leaving the construction unclad, lends the interior its archaic direct character, that can be more specifically expressed in the choice of furnishing. Save this picture!© Dominique Marc WehrliTime should be able to leave its mark on the building. The continuous transformation due to the process of natural weathering is registered both inside on the venetian blinds, and outside on the exterior skin, and the steel plates deployed instead of the traditional concrete retaining wall. The eventual transformation of the building through time reflects a natural process aiding as it does the full integration of the house into its natural surrounding.Save this picture!First Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessOMA Leads Pont Jean-Jacques Bosc Competition in BordeauxArticlesCritical Distance Kairos ConferenceEvent Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/387952/haus-schudel-oos-ag Clipboard Save this picture!© Dominique Marc Wehrli+ 18 Share Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/387952/haus-schudel-oos-ag Clipboard “COPY” Haus Schudel / OOS AGlast_img read more

Alabama: #JusticeForKindraChapman

first_imgIn Alabama, a Black teenager has died in police custody under suspicious circumstances. Kindra Darnell Chapman, 18 years old, was arrested July 14 by the Homewood city police, allegedly for stealing a cell phone on the street. Homewood is a suburb of Birmingham.Charged with first-class theft, a felony charge for a typically third-class misdemeanor offense, Chapman was processed at 6:02 p.m., seen alive at 6:30 p.m. and found dead in a jail cell at 7:42 p.m., allegedly a suicide by hanging using a bed sheet. (WBRC, Huffington Post)Kindra Darnell Chapman, 18 years old, died in police custody.Photo: Operation I AMCommunity sources on social media point out that no bed sheets are provided in the jail’s holding cells. They also point to the notoriously racist behavior of the Homewood police, with accounts of guns being pulled on people of color as well as threats, harassment and violence against local anti-police-brutality organizers, including the tasering and beating of a Black Lives Matter activist.“Operation I AM,” a local group that emerged from the Birmingham Hands Up movement, has launched a campaign demanding information and answers about Chapman’s death from the Homewood Police Department. (facebook/handsupbirmingham)In a phone conversation with WW, an Operation I AM organizer said that in addition to holding police accountable, the effort is to warn the police that “the public eye is on you now.”He added: “The time for action is now. We can’t wait anymore for it to happen next door. Birmingham is next door. This happened to somebody who had a life they were trying to live.” Paraphrasing Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., he emphasized, “If you have injustice anywhere, it is a threat to justice everywhere.”Organizers are discussing an added dimension to Chapman’s death as a hate crime. Local Black Lives Matter activists state that Chapman was part of the LGBT community.Though how Chapman might define hir identity cannot now be known, it is probable the Homewood police perceived Chapman to be a lesbian or trans* person. Chapman’s Facebook page, now down, featured a photo of hir girlfriend, who was pregnant, and an ultrasound image. Friends affirmed Chapman was excited about the possibility of a baby coming, and strongly doubted hir death was a suicide.A record number of LGBT homicides have been reported in 2015. There were 14 in the first two months alone, with half of those deaths being trans* women of color. An earlier report recorded 18 LGBT homicides in 2013, with almost 90 percent of those killed being people of color. More than two-thirds were transgender women. (National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs)Operation I Am, local BLM activists and others are organizing a July 22 protest, #KindraLives, in Homewood. In New York City, the People’s Power Assemblies have also called a rally on July 22 for Chapman and Sandra Bland, an African-American woman who died July 10 in police custody in Texas.Rise in Alabama racist actsOpen displays of aggressive racism are on the rise again in Alabama. Two days after Chapman’s death, carloads of white men flying Confederate flags and yelling racist slurs terrorized a Black neighborhood in the small town of Clanton, 50 miles south of Birmingham.The men were local, calling out the names of some of the neighborhood people in their threats. Residents defended themselves with baseball bats. (WIAT)The attack followed a July 4 pro-Confederate flag march in Clanton, one of more than 50 such rallies in the South, as reported by the white-supremacist group, Council of Conservative Citizens. (conservative-headlines.com)The Saturday after Chapman’s death, Linn Park in Birmingham was the site of a pro-Confederate flag rally after the city’s Parks and Recreation Board voted to remove a Confederate monument erected there in 1904. (ABC 33/40)That rally was sponsored by Alabama Flaggers, a chapter of a regional movement with the motto “This Flag Never Comes Down.”  Speakers included Justin Burton, who has ties to the white-supremacist, anti-Semitic “League of the South,” as well as the CCC. (restoringthehonor.blogspot)There are long-standing connections between white-supremacist groups and Alabama police. In June, the Southern Poverty Law Center exposed one member of the Anniston, Ala., police department as the chairman of a League of the South chapter, and another city cop as having attended a League convention.In 1961, the Ku Klux Klan firebombed several buses in Anniston carrying Freedom Riders. State and local police looked on as a white mob viciously beat Black and white civil rights activists testing a U.S. Supreme Court decision desegregating interstate travel.The Freedom Rides continued, following the leadership of student activists like Diane Nash of Tennessee, who said: “We can’t let them stop us with violence. If we do, the movement is dead.” (Rosetta Ross, “Witnessing and Testifying,” 2003)FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Flatland Cavalry on stage in Odessa

first_img Flatland Cavalry brings an energetic blend of Country-Folk-Americana to La Hacienda in Midland. A January album called “Homeland Insecurity” has done well for the band Flatland Cavalry. It’s the sophomore release for the band and has rave reviews. The Lubbock natives group were well reviewed by savingcountrymusic.com with: “It’s one incredible testament to the vitality of the Texas music scene that a young troupe of musicians from Lubbock playing short-run tours in between college semesters can do so well for themselves that they’re headlining festivals and receiving millions of plays on their songs, and all without a legitimate record label. While many Nashville Americana acts and up-and-comers get showered with praise from the press with little proof of concept, Flatland Cavalry is upgrading to a tour bus before they receive their diplomas due to the reception they’re finding among appreciative fans, and the respect they’ve earned from their peers and elders in a region where songwriting, honesty, and authenticity come first.” Flatland Cavalry will bring their sound to the Permian Basin May 17 at the La Hacienda Event Center. The Dirty River Boys will also perform. Their website, flatlandcavalry.com, details that the album shows how they have evolved as musicians and storytellers. Bandleader and chief lyricist Cleto Cordero, guitarist Reid Dillon, bassist Jonathan Saenz, drummer Jason Albers, and newest member, fiddle player Wesley Hall have been honing their craft for several years. “I think at some point, you feel like you need to grow-up, but you don’t know how,” Cordero said on the website. “You’re searching for that path though. You’re overturning every rock trying to find the secret that gets on to the next. I’m not trying to be a teacher or anything. I just wish someone would have told me earlier on and saved me the heartache of it all.” Facebook By Digital AIM Web Support – February 24, 2021 TAGS  Local News Twitter Twitter Pinterestcenter_img WhatsApp Facebook Flatland Cavalry on stage in Odessa Previous article050119_Cardio_drumming_jf_04Next articleGUEST VIEW: TexProtects helps prepare mothers of newborns, young children Digital AIM Web Support Pinterest WhatsApplast_img read more

Family with mica home find out mortgage sold to vulture fund

first_img WhatsApp Community Enhancement Programme open for applications Important message for people attending LUH’s INR clinic Facebook Pinterest Google+ Google+ AudioHomepage BannerNews By News Highland – October 30, 2018 Facebook Twitter Pinterestcenter_img It’s emerged that a Donegal family affected by the use of concrete blocks with mica in their homes was told just weeks before the announcement of a new scheme to assist them that their mortgage had been sold to a vulture fund.Faced with a choice between paying for repair work to save his home from being condemned and keeping up his monthly mortgage payments, Karl Murtagh (42) decided to get the construction work done and is now €20,000 in arrears.The bank agreed to allow Murtagh to pay interest only on his mortgage for a short period but when this expired he was required to pay the full amount.In September, he received a letter from Ulster Bank informing him that his loan has been transferred to a vulture fund.The letter stated that the review which led to the sale of Murtagh’s mortgage was part of the bank’s “continuing strategy to create a strong and sustainable bank for all our customers”.Speaking on the Nine Till Noon Show, Mr. Murtagh says wants clarity as to where he stands:Audio Playerhttp://www.highlandradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/karbvnbvnbvnbvvulture1pm.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.His was just one of hundreds of home loans sold to the vulture fund by Ulster Bank.Murtagh said there is still extensive deterioration in his home that urgently needs to be repaired.He said the government needs to move quickly now before homes deteriorate beyond repair.

Seismic stratigraphy of the Antarctic Peninsula Pacific margin: A record of Pliocene-Pleistocene ice volume and paleoclimate

first_imgMultichannel seismic profiles across the Pacific margin of the Antarctic Peninsula show a series of oblique progradational sequences. These sequences exhibit a variety of unusual characteristics that suggest they were produced by the action of ice sheets grounded out to the shelf edge at times of glacial maximum. Reflection events from deeper stratigraphic levels, followed down the continental slope and onto the rise, overlie ocean crust of known age, showing that at least eight such glacial sequences have been deposited within the past 6 m.y. Similar groundings have probably occurred on most Antarctic margins, but the depositional record is particularly well preserved at this margin because of Pliocene-Pleistocene thermal subsidence. Neogene global sea-level fluctuations have been attributed to changes in volume of continental ice sheets. The depositional sequences on the Pacific margin of the Antarctic Peninsula are thought to record West Antarctic ice-sheet fluctuations directly. Further investigation of these sequences would assess the relation between fluctuations in ice volume and the low-latitude record of global sea-level change.last_img read more

The use of predator-derived length-frequency distributions to calculate krill target strength

first_imgThe relationship between krill abundance and predator performance is fundamental to an ecosystem-based approach to resource management. We propose a method using krillsampled from the diet of predators to provide a length-frequency distribution of krill at times when it is possible to run automated shipboard acoustic systems but not to conduct scientific netting, i.e during logistic/resupply operations. This will allow a robustestimate of krill abundance to be calculated from acoustic data. Changes in the lengthfrequency distribution of krill over a period of a few weeks produced a 10% differencein TS, whereas simultaneous samples from predators and nets produced only a 1% difference, illustrating the need for simultaneous length-frequency data. By integratingdata from land-based predators directly with automated on-board data collection systems it will be possible to gain important estimates of krill biomass at times of the seasonhitherto unavailable from shipboard scientific surveys.last_img read more
