Bell Street House thoughtfully responds to its homeowners’ lifestyles, striking the balance between a minimalist aesthetic and the liveability necessary to its function as a family home.Save this picture!© Lucy BockOur client brief called for an understated contemporary space that would accommodate their love for entertaining. What entailed was a full reconfiguration of the existing floorplan comprising new front and rear courtyard spaces and, new external windows and doors. A new staircase with powder room underneath repurposes forgotten space, overcoming the common spatial challenges that present themselves in home refurbishments.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanWe envisioned a space that would exude a sense of lightness and bring calm to those within it. Maximising airflow and maintaining a strong visual connection to the courtyard spaces was central to achieving this. The monochromatic colour palette is softened by an abundance of natural light, imbuing the space with warmth. Additional textural finishes such as timber, marble, rendered brick and chunky carpet bring tactility to the home.Save this picture!© Lucy BockThe result is a contemporary aesthetic that responds to the functional challenges of the family home – especially one with a small child. The project is a testament to Techne’s ability to deliver bespoke and authentic design at any scale, where each architectural response is unique to its context and human usage.Save this picture!© Lucy BockProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Green House / Sigurd LarsenSelected ProjectsMedia City, Istanbul – From Micro Code to Macro CityUnbuilt Project Share Integrated Construction “COPY” Bell Street House / Techne Architecture + Interior DesignSave this projectSaveBell Street House / Techne Architecture + Interior Design ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Houses Bell Street House / Techne Architecture + Interior Design Area: 160 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ArchDaily Photographs: Lucy Bock Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Year: Energy Lab Consultants ESD: CopyAbout this officeTechne Architecture + Interior DesignOfficeFollowProductsConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRichmondAustraliaPublished on June 05, 2017Cite: “Bell Street House / Techne Architecture + Interior Design” 04 Jun 2017.

Photographer and assistant gunned down in Cali for as yet unclear reasons

first_img ColombiaAmericas October 25, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Photographer and assistant gunned down in Cali for as yet unclear reasons ColombiaAmericas Organisation News RSF_en April 27, 2021 Find out more RSF, IFEX-ALC and Media Defence, support FLIP and journalist Diana Díaz against state harassment in Colombia Follow the news on Colombia October 21, 2020 Find out more Newscenter_img RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America Help by sharing this information May 13, 2021 Find out more Reports 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies to go further Receive email alerts News Reporters Without Borders is deeply shocked by the murders of freelance photographer Carlos Alberto Jaramillo and his assistant, Julio César García, who were shot dead while driving in their car near the southwestern city of Cali on 21 October. The motive for this double-killing has not been established but, after a wave of forced departures of journalists in what is one of the more dangerous countries for the media, the organisation fears this could represent a further deterioration in press freedom.“We offer our condolences to the families and friends of the two photographers, and our thoughts go out to the Association of Journalists of Quindío, of which Jaramillo was a member,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We hope the investigation leads quickly to the identification and punishment of those responsible.”The organisation added: “Although the motive for their murders has not yet been determined, it raises fears of new attacks on the media, which have already been weakened by the forced departures of several journalists.”Jaramillo, 50, and García, 43, were on their way from Armenia to Cali to cover a bicycle race when one or more persons opened fire on their car. Jaramillo was hit in the head and chest, and died instantly. García was hit in the left eye and died after being taken to Joaquim Paz Borrero hospital.The father of four children, Jaramillo worked for four regional newspapers including La Crónica del Quindío and Q’hubo Nuestro Diario. He concentrated on covering sports and some social issues. He had in the past worked in Israel for 10 years.The Valle del Cauca departmental police told Reporters Without Borders they did not think the murders were linked to the victims’ work as journalists. A friend of Jaramillo, Armenia-based journalist José J. Domínguez, said Jaramillo “survived by taking photos and, for this reason, would not have taken the risk of covering any unusual (crime organisation) stories.” Jaramillo’s family told Reporters Without Borders he had not received any threats.last_img read more

Notre Dame College Republicans host conservative commentator Ben Shapiro

first_imgMichael Yu | The Observer The Notre Dame College Republicans hosted conservative commentator Ben Shapiro on Thursday night in Carey Auditorium.Shapiro began his lecture with an attack on intersectionality, an idea he said he feels has gained undue notoriety on college campuses.“[Intersectionality] says we ought to judge people on their identity and not on the basis of the opinions they hold,” he said. “An identity is solely defined in terms of the group — it’s defined by race, by gender, by sexual orientation. There’s hierarchy of victimhood intersectionality … at the very top of the list are LGBT folk.”Shapiro said this creation of victimhood also spills over into what he believes is the false notion of white privilege and the notion that there are barriers standing in front of minority groups.“Society is not out to get you. Society doesn’t give two damns about you. … No one is going to bother to stand in your way,” he said. “If you don’t want to be poor in the United States … you only have to follow three simple rules: get married before you have babies, complete high school, get a job — that’s it. It doesn’t require a degree in rocket science.”Shapiro also applied this philosophy to feminist thought.“Are American women victimized? No,” he said. “American women are the freest and the wealthiest in the history of the world.”These supposed myths, Shapiro said, were perpetrated on college campuses — a setting in which he believes conservative students could learn to defend beliefs. “It’s a good opportunity for conservative students to get better at what they do,” he said. “[For me, it] was a good opportunity to read what [professors] were assigning and consider the arguments that they are making and then go do research as to why they are right and wrong.” Shapiro also spoke on illegal immigration, one of the key issues at the center of last year’s presidential election.“It is immoral to let people in who have not been vetted,” he said. “I don’t think the moral argument is [the] ‘People are coming from across the sea to take our jobs’ argument. I think that is a silly argument. I don’t think you have a right to work for a higher wage because you were born there.”Junior Lars Rucker said he appreciated that Shapiro backed up his claims.“Everything he said had some reasoning,” he said. “If he wasn’t confident in his reasoning, he specified.”Sophomore Diego Arias said he hopes Shapiro continues to speak with a focus on issues that were present in the latter half of the event.“I think he tried to fight back against the left with emotional stances, but the [question-and-answer] segment was better because it [answered] more reasonings for political stances — he has one of the clearest stances on Israel,” he said.Sophomore Daniel Beasley said he thought Shapiro could have done a better job addressing his viewpoints in his speech rather than in the question-and-answer segment.“He knows he can stir up the most controversy and get [to] the most people by talking about campus protests and things like that,” he said. “And I think part of that inadvertently fuels, not the ‘alt-right,’ but being against campus protests for the sake of being against it, rather than making a pitch for his own political viewpoint. You come out of the Q-and-A knowing what he believes.”Tags: Ben Shapiro, College Republicans, Lincoln Day Address Two days after conservative author Charles Murray visited Notre Dame’s campus, Ben Shapiro, the editor-in-chief of The Daily Wire and self-proclaimed “second-favorite 33-year-old Jew” of American conservatives, spoke in the Carey Auditorium of Hesburgh Library as a part of College Republicans’ 69th annual Lincoln Day Dinner and Speech on Thursday.last_img read more

Sweden nears Herd Immunitiy after “Open” Approach to COVID-19

first_imgSweden has remained more or less open throughout the coronavirus crisis preserving its economy. By doing next to nothing, Sweden is close to reaching “herd immunity.” Herd immunity occurs when a large percentage of a population gets infected, recovers, and subsequently becomes immune to further infection.Mr Tegnell, the head of Sweden’s Public Health Agency, declares that cases in the capital have plateaued, and that the effects of herd immunity were already apparent.“In a few weeks’ time we might reach herd immunity and we believe that is why we’re seeing a slow decline in cases, in spite of [testing for coronavirus] more and more,” according to Tegnell.And while it’s a bit early to tell, it could be paying off. Mr Tegnell has said that the capital Stockholm, the country’s outbreak epicentre, “might” reach herd immunity in May.In Swededn people are encouraged work at home, nursing homes are not accepting visitors, and universities have moved to online learning.But, people are not stuck at home. Bars, restaurants and gyms have been able to continue operating, provided they follow Sweden’s relatively less strict physical-distancing measures, and schools have also kept their doors open.“Locking people up at home won’t work in the longer term,” Sweden’s chief epidemiologist Anders Tegnell told reporters earlier this month.“Sooner or later people are going to go out anyway.”But officials are warning this doesn’t mean a potentially early end to the pandemic for Sweden, and the country’s approach is not without its critics at home and abroad.Sweden has had 16,755 confirmed cases of COVID-19, with 2,021 deaths: neighbouring Norway and Denmark, which have taken more stringent approaches, have just a fraction of those numbers.Sweden’s strategy to keep large parts of society open is widely backed by the public. It has been devised by scientists and backed by government, and yet not all the country’s virologists are convinced.Very little has shut down in Sweden, but data suggests the vast majority of the population have taken to voluntary social distancing, which is the crux of Sweden’s strategy to slow the spread of the virus.Usage of public transport has dropped significantly, large numbers are working from home, and most refrained from travelling over the Easter weekend. The government has also banned gatherings of more than 50 people and visits to elderly care homes.Around 9 in 10 Swedes say they keep at least a metre away from people at least some of the time, up from seven in 10 a month ago, according to a major survey by polling firm Novus.The Swedish Public Health Agency applauds the way people have responded to the virus without the government mandating anything.The scientists’ approach has led to weeks of global debate over whether Sweden has adopted a sensible and sustainable plan, or unwittingly plunged its population into an experiment that is causing unnecessary fatalities, and could fail to keep the spread of Covid-19 under control.By contrast, in the United States some local governments have adopted draconian policies opposite of Sweden.Residents in Riverside County, California, are now required to wear face coverings and could face a fine of $1,000 per violation per day if the mandate, which went into effect Sunday, is ignored.Recent data from the Riverside University Health System indicated 946 confirmed positive cases of coronavirus within the county with 25 deaths attributable to the illness.“While more and more Riverside County residents are getting COVID-19, not everybody’s getting the message,” said Riverside County public health officer Dr. Cameron Kaiser in a statement Saturday. “It started with staying home, social distance and covering your face. But now we change from saying that you should to saying that you must.”last_img read more

People’s champ Woodland Hills knocks out Central Catholic at the Wolvarena

first_imgWith that in mind, each of Woodland Hills’ victories so far this fall has seemingly added to the notion that the Wolverines are back on top.Woodland Hills has already lowered the boom and knocked out the reigning WPIAL Class AAAA champion Bethel Park, 21-17. The loss ended Bethel Park’s 16-game winning streak against WPIAL competition and there should be no question after the Wolverines dominating performance against the Vikings.Weather played a part in the victory. The storm and steady rain made the football more difficult to handle and the Wolverines employed a low-risk running game that allowed Timbers to chop down the Vikings like he had an “ax to grind.”Timbers, who spent his freshman and sophomore years at Central Catholic, got his new team on the scoreboard first on a 10-yard touchdown run to give Woodland Hills a 6-0 lead.Central’s Matt MacZura kicked a 42-yard field goal to cut the lead to 6-3.In the second quarter behind the running of Timbers and 230-pound fullback Cameron Thompkins, who seems to salivate when he sees a defensive back that’s 50 pounds lighter trying to challenge him, extended the lead to 17-3 at halftime.The high-powered offense for the Woodland Hills varsity football team gets a lot of attention from its big offensive line led by Bruce Atkins, talented running backs and receivers.At the same time, the Wolverine defense, led by Richard “Bump” Gray, Julian Turner and Pitt recruit Khaynin Mosley-Smith, has made its mark this season.Damian Jones-Moore, who had averaged nearly 200 yards per game heading into the contest, was held to 81 yards on 18 carries.“All week we talked about getting 11 guys to the ball,” said “Bump” Gray, who had two quarterback sacks. “We came out hyped and played together. I want to win a championship.”Jones-Moore, the WPIAL’s second-leading rusher, is also a 4.0 student in the classroom, but it was Timbers who went to the head of the class.He scored three touchdowns and Woodland Hills outrushed the Vikings, 252-86.The Central Catholic team made the most of every possible opportunity to beat themselves against Woodland Hills.The Wolverines sacked quarterback Dave Smyers six times and caused three fumbles.“I came here to see Damian Jones-Moore,” said coach Jerry Stackhouse. “I coached him in midget football. He was a great player for the Beltzhoover Browns.”The most exciting play of the night was called back because of a penalty. Junior Lafayette Pitts has used his standout speed to burst onto the scene in recent weeks. He returned a punt in the third quarter 72 yards for a touchdown.Pitts is also a talented wide receiver and punter. He set a school record by booming a 67-yard punt in the first half.The win moved Novak into 10th place on the WPIAL’s all-time list of winningest coaches, passing former Kiski Area coach Dick Dilts. Novak is 235-117-1.Woodland Hills has great tradition. The Wolverines are one of six high schools in the country that have at least five graduates on NFL rosters this season including Ryan Mundy of the Pittsburgh Steelers.Now that Coach Novak has his running game in place and a slew of talented skill position players to complement him, the Woodland Hills offense that struggled so much last season is suddenly lighting up scoreboards.Timbers and his teammates’ relentless pursuit of a WPIAL title are trying to prove they are second to none. RELENTLESS—Dom Timbers of Woodland Hills ran through the rain for 162 yards and three touchdowns in a win over Central Catholic. Timbers rushed for 162 yards—his fourth consecutive 100-yard effort—and three touchdowns to lead Class AAAA No. 3 Woodland Hills 27-3 over No. 4 Central Catholic.Coach George Novak’s Woodland Hills football program has fallen upon some hard times recently.The four-time WPIAL Class AAAA champion Wolverines have not advanced past the first round of the playoffs since 2006 and have not returned to a Heinz Field title game since winning their last crown in 2002.To be the champs, the Wolverines will have to beat the champs. READING THE DEFENSE—Woodland Hills quarterback John Yezovich looks to pass against Central Catholic. Don’t look for Woodland Hills (4-1, 1-0) and Central Catholic (3-2, 0-1) to “friend” each other on Facebook anytime soon.These two powerhouse teams faced off at the Wolverena Friday night, Oct. 2, and it was time for Syracuse recruit Dom Timbers to make a statement.last_img read more
