SIP Panel House / Gabriel Rudolphy + Alejandro Soffia

first_imgPhotographs:  Felipe Fontecilla Text description provided by the architects. Built with SIP panels (Structural Insulated Panels), this house is conceived as an attempt to rationalize this construction material and achieve a maximum optimization of its structural and dimensional qualities. The totality of the house was configured with two kinds of components: wall panels (122 cm x 244 cm x 11.4 cm) and split-levelpanels (122 cm x 488 cm x 21 cm). In just 10 days, 71 wall panels and 40 split-level panels were built. The loss of material was negligible.

These spaces are the result of multiplying these volumes along the length of their transversal axis according to standard surfaces of use. The house is comprised of the sum of these different spaces.

The principal rooms are clustered toward the north, in the quest for an ocean view. The panels exposed on the exterior are fashioned as terraces on the second and third floors. The eastern façade of the house, close to a neighbor, is more closed-off, and the western façade opens up to the light and the view. The northern and southern faces of the house, as well as the terraces, are enveloped in a wooden skin.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessHouse A / Vaillo & Irigaray + BeguiristainArticlesHA Tower / Frontoffice + Francois BlanciakArticles Share “COPY” Photographs Save this picture!© Felipe Fontecilla+ 18 Share SIP Panel House / Gabriel Rudolphy + Alejandro Soffia CopyHouses•Santo Domingo, Chile Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard SIP Panel House / Gabriel Rudolphy + Alejandro SoffiaSave this projectSaveSIP Panel House / Gabriel Rudolphy + Alejandro Soffia ArchDaily “COPY” Year:  Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Chile Architects: Alejandro Soffia, Gabriel Rudolphy Area Area of this architecture project 2011 Area:  139 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeGabriel RudolphyOfficeFollowGabriel RudolphyOfficeFollowGabriel RudolphyOfficeFollowGabriel RudolphyOfficeFollowAlejandro SoffiaOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSanto DomingoHousesChilePublished on April 26, 2012Cite: “SIP Panel House / Gabriel Rudolphy + Alejandro Soffia” 26 Apr 2012.

News story: Campsfield House immigration removal centre to close

first_imgToday, the Home Office has announced that Campsfield House immigration removal centre will close by May 2019, when the current management contract with Mitie Care and Custody ends.The closure of the 282 bed centre is part of Home Secretary Sajid Javid’s commitment to cut the number of people detained at any given time and improve the welfare of detainees. These reforms were announced in response to Stephen Shaw’s review into welfare of vulnerable people in detention.By next summer, the Home Office will aim to reduce the immigration detention estate by almost 40% since 2015.Immigration Minister, Caroline Nokes said: In response to Stephen Shaw’s second review of the government’s approach to vulnerable people in immigration detention, the Home Office committed to working with charities, faith groups, communities and other stakeholders to develop alternatives to detention, strengthening support for vulnerable detainees and increasing transparency.In addition, reforms have already led to a reduction in the number of occupants per room, and will improve facilities in immigration removal centres, including piloting the use of Skype and reviewing the training and support for staff in immigration removal centres.In 2015, Centres in Dover and Haslar closed and the Verne Immigration Removal Centre in Dorset closed in January 2018. There are no current plans for further immigration removal centre closures. However, as the Home Office progresses with reforms outlined in the response to Stephen Shaw’s second review, the use of immigration detention and the implications for the detention estate as a whole, will be kept under review. I am grateful to all the staff who’ve worked at Campsfield over the years for their commitment and professionalism. Now is the right time to modernise and rationalise the detention estate. We are committed to ensuring we have a fair and humane immigration system that provides control, and detention must only be used when we are confident no other approaches will work.last_img read more

B’way Theaters Will Dim Marquees for the Late Geoffrey Holder

first_img View Comments “No one who saw The Wiz will ever forget the memorable experience, in large part thanks to the direction and design brought to the Broadway stage by Geoffrey Holder,” Charlotte St. Martin, Executive Director of The Broadway League, said in a statement. “An incredibly talented artist seen in many mediums, his visual creativity and influence was unforgettable.” Holder made his Great White Way debut in House of Flowers, for which he also choreographed a dance piece. He would go on to reprise the role of Baron Samedi, a Haitian Voodoo spirit whom he portrayed in the show, in the 1973 James Bond film Live and Let Die. In 1975, following various stage and screen appearances, he made his directorial debut with The Wiz, taking home Tonys for his direction and for his costume design. He also directed, choreographed and costume designed 1978’s Timbuktu!.center_img Broadway theaters will pay tribute to the late Geoffrey Holder as they dim their lights on October 10.

England face day of destiny in World Cup final against New Zealand

first_imgEngland captain Eoin Morgan (right) and Joe Root celebrate victory in the World Cup semi-final against AustraliaLondon, United Kingdom | AFP |  England face New Zealand in the World Cup final on Sunday knowing years of planning come down to a single day at Lord’s.When England exited the 2015 edition with an embarrassing defeat by Bangladesh, few were tipping them as potential champions in four years’ time.As England captain Eoin Morgan put it: “If you had offered us the position to play in a final the day after we were knocked out of the 2015 World Cup, I would have laughed at you.”One person not laughing was Andrew Strauss, the former England director of cricket.Drafted into the newly created role, Strauss set about an overhaul that saw the former England captain appoint Australia’s Trevor Bayliss as coach, and place greater emphasis on white-ball cricket.The worth of all that work showed when Morgan’s men, now top of the one-day international rankings, thrashed reigning champions Australia by eight wickets in the semi-final at Edgbaston on Thursday.Many of the elements that made England the pre-tournament favourites were on show in Birmingham.Pacemen Jofra Archer and Chris Woakes reduced Australia to 14-3, leg-spinner Adil Rashid took wickets in the middle and the dynamic duo of Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow — statistically the most successful opening pair in ODI history — launched the run chase with a blistering century partnership.– ‘Fearless’ cricket –The challenge for England is to embrace the hype surrounding Sunday’s fixture without letting it inhibit them from playing their brand of “fearless” cricket.By reaching the final, England have guaranteed an international match will be shown live on free-to-air television in Britain for the first time since the iconic 2005 Ashes series — a chance to inspire a new generation.“I think Sunday’s not a day to shy away from, it’s a day to look forward to,” said Morgan, an outrider in English cricket in becoming an ODI specialist when the steely Dubliner realised his Test career had stalled.It is perhaps appropriate that England are facing New Zealand in a final between two sides who have yet to win the World Cup. For it was the Black Caps who showed England how to play the modern one-day game at the 2015 edition in Wellington four years ago.They shot out England for just 123 and then overhauled that total in a mere 12.2 overs.“It was as close to rock-bottom as I’ve been”, said Morgan. “Certainly as a captain and as a player, being beaten off the park like that was humiliating.”England gained a measure of revenge with a 119-run thrashing of New Zealand in a group-stage match earlier in this World Cup.But that is unlikely to count for much on Sunday.All tournament long, the same comment has been made about New Zealand — they boast a well-balanced attack led by left-arm quick Trent Boult but are over-reliant on captain Kane Williamson and fellow senior batsman Ross Taylor for their runs.The polite Kiwis have responded by continuing to “scrap”, in the phrase of fast bowler Lockie Ferguson, their way to wins as demonstrated by their dramatic 18-run semi-final victory over India.Boult and Matt Henry reduced one of the world’s most powerful top orders to 5-3, before left-arm spinner Mitchell Santner, aided by superb fielding, backed them up after Williamson and Taylor had made battling fifties on a tricky pitch.While many members of the home side were not even born when England made the last of three losing appearances in a World Cup final in 1992, the Black Caps have the experience of their heavy defeat by co-hosts Australia in the climax of the 2015 edition in Melbourne to call on.“I’d be lying if I said we weren’t a bit overawed by the change of scenery,” said Taylor as he looked back to New Zealand’s first and only match on Australian soil in that tournament.“I think we know what to expect, the pressures that come with it, we’ve been there before. You just have to enjoy it, it’s the ‘Home of Cricket’, I can’t think of a better place to play a final.”Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Newcomers Northamptonshire take the lead

first_img25 Aug 2015 Newcomers Northamptonshire take the lead Northamptonshire marked their first appearance at the Boys’ County Championship final by taking the day one lead with a hard-fought 5-4 win over Hampshire at King’s Lynn Golf Club.In the day’s other match, Wiltshire clawed their way back from 3-0 down at lunch to halve with Durham.It was a day for fightbacks, with Northamptonshire overcoming a 2-1 deficit after the foursomes, by winning four of the six singles to claim the point.Northamptonshire had managed to keep in touch in the foursomes when Callum Farr and Ben Jones (image © Leaderboard Photography), who trailed on the outward half, won their match on the 18th. “That was massively important,” said team manager Adam Myers.In the afternoon, both boys went on to win their singles, as did Matthew Myers, leaving the way clear for Tom Forster to clinch the team’s overall win.He was taken to the 18th by Jason Sundborg – who recently reached the quarter finals of the Boys’ Amateur Championship – but held his nerve to hole a 10-footer on the last and hang on to his one-up advantage. “I’m very proud of them all,” said Myers.Wiltshire staged a remarkable comeback to snatch a halved match, after they lost all three morning foursomes.“We just didn’t get going at all this morning and Durham played some really good golf,” said Wiltshire team manager Ian Welding. “But this afternoon was a completely different story.“The boys came out determined to show they could play better and that they weren’t going to give the match away and they turned it round.”The tension mounted as the afternoon unfolded and Wiltshire had to battle to the end, with Charlie Dunn winning the 18th to halve his game against Durham’s Jack Ainscough; and Dom Burgess parring the last to keep his one-up advantage over Will Marshall.“It was very exciting and could have gone either way,” said Welding. “The boys did fantastically well to change it round and now they have so much more confidence and momentum.”Durham, who were runners-up in last year’s championship, were disappointed to let their lead slip away. But team captain Ken Joel said: “It was a great game and both teams played well and in a very good spirit. It was a pleasure to watch and to be involved in.”Tomorrow, Wiltshire will play Hampshire, while Northamptonshire take on Durham.Click here for full scoreslast_img read more

Leafs ring up 14 on the Bruins en route to lopsided KIJHL win

first_imgBy Bruce FuhrThe Nelson Daily SportsWhat’s the best way for a team to cure all the woes of a season and gain necessary confidence to climb up league standings?Play the Grand Forks Border Bruins.The Nelson Leafs dropped 14 on the lowly Bruins, beating the Murdoch Division cellar dwellers by two converted touchdowns Saturday in Kootenay International Junior Hockey League action at the NDCC Arena.“It was definitely good for us to play them and get some confidence back,” said Leaf forward Linden Horswill after racking up four points, including a hat trick, on the Bruins.“We played well against (Grand Forks) so it was good for us to turn it around after (the recent road stint).”It took a little time for the Leafs to get going as the Bruins played the home side even for the first five-plus minutes.But a power play goal by Max Mois opened the floodgates.Nelson, 14-8-0-2, scored five more times, including a pair each from Horswill and Brett Norman, to take a 6-0 lead into the intermission.“We out skated (Grand Forks) . . . a lot,” Horswill said when asked about the difference in the game. “We moved the puck around well and just took it to them.”Playing the game without the full compliment of bodies, Nelson had the remaining lines flying and at one point in the second period held a 20-2 shot advantage on the struggling Bruins.The all-Nelson line of Horswill, Carsen Willans and Dallon Stoddart contributed big to the Leaf attack as the Heritage City trio finished the game with 12 points.“Carsen (Willans) does well at setting us up,” said Horswill, complimenting his teammate for making his night around the net easy with a few gift set-ups.“(Carsen) is definitely a great person to play with . . .  the same with Dallon (Stoddart).”The game definitely padded the stats for most Leaf players.Norman finished the game with three goals along with two assists.James Sorrey scored twice and also had two helpers.Nik Newman, J.J. Beitel, scoring his first KIJHL marker and finishing the game with five points, Willans, earning the game’s third star with a five-point night, game captain Jonathon Petrash and Matti Jmaeff also scored for Nelson.Patrick Defoe had quite an easy time in goal, although to get the shutout — his second of the season — the rookie backstop needed help from his posts and crossbar as Grand Forks a couple times rang pucks off the iron.However, after it was all said and done, Horswill couldn’t help feeling a little sorry for the Bruin players.“Playing on that (Grand Forks) team would be a little hard . . . especially not getting a lot of wins,” Horswill said. “But you can’t think of that when you’re playing. You just have to forget about who you are playing and just play.”The Leafs remain in second spot in Murdoch standings, four points behind the Beaver Valley Nitehawks and two in front of the surging Castlegar Rebels. Both Murdoch rivals have played fewer games than the Leafs.The loss, combined with a 7-5 setback Sunday to Spokane Braves, is the 19th for Grand Forks. The Bruins remain the only KIJHL team not to register a win.“Obviously (the constant losing) is disappointing. These results are tough to take, for sure,” said Grand Forks coach and GM Brent Batten.“The boys are actually doing pretty well attitude wise,” Batten added. “They realize things will get better. It’s just a matter of working through obviously some big obstacles. But were all staying positive and as a (coaching) staff we’re remaining positive as well.”GAME NOTES: The final shot total was 48-6 in favour of the Leafs. . . .Grand Forks starting goalie Cole Buckley, who had his playing rights obtained by the Bruins earlier this month from Revelstoke Grizzlies, played two periods before giving away to Nathan Nicolson. . . .Nelson lost the services of winger Max Mois during the game. Mois was sent to the dressing room as a precaution to guard against a current injury. . . .Other Leafs out of the lineup due to injury included forward Colton Malmsten along with defencemen Riley Henderson, Blake Arcuri, Tyler Parfeniuk and Julian Davis. Nelson was also missing forward Colton Schell who was called up by Trail of the BCHL for Saturday’s 2-1 overtime loss to the Vernon Vipers. . . .Grand Forks coach Brent Batten said the Bruins had seven players out of its lineup due to injury. . . .Nelson, finishing the weekend registering three off four points after dropping a 3-2 overtime decision to Fernie Thursday, has a week off before hosting Penticton Lakers for a Saturday home game at the NDCC [email protected]last_img read more

Scott Metzger, June 26

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest We started cutting wheat around the 17th. We had a little freeze damage in the wheat in the areas where I expected it. There the yields were in the mid to low 80s but the rest of it has been in the upper 90s and low 100s.The test weight has been fine. Some of the worst areas of the wheat were a pound or two lighter but nothing drastic like I thought it would be. There just was not seed in the head. About three-fourths of the stem was still wet where there was frost damage. The wheat never matured right. The seed head was dry but the stems were tough.We still have about 75 acres to do and I’m hoping to start on it late this afternoon. We leave the straw and double-crop right behind it. I like having that residue out on the field and it lets us get the double-crop beans in faster too.We got four to 4.5 inches of rain Friday night into Saturday and I’m sure that will lead to lower test weights. The sooner we can get that cut the less likely we are to have quality issues. The first double-crop beans were planted a week ago and you can row those now. With that rain and heat, they popped up pretty quickly and are not looking bad. The beans are really taking off growing.The rain fell over a long period. It was a nice rain. As we got closer to that four-inch mark we started to see some water running off but the ground really took it in. The wet holes still have water standing in them but if the wheat was left in the tiled ground we could have probably run yesterday.We went almost three weeks without any measurable rain. On the gravel ground the corn was getting pretty stressed. The beans weren’t growing well but it is hard to believe how they jumped out of the ground.You can’t really tell the difference between the April and May planted corn anymore. We have a bit of giant ragweed along some field edges, but overall the fields are looking petty clean. We’ll start post- spraying beans this week and we’ll be using the new technology. Two-thirds of our beans are dicamba beans.last_img read more

Give Your Project a Retro-Creepy Vibe With 80s Synth Music

first_img80s synth music is back, thanks to the Netflix hit Stranger Things. If your next horror or sci-fi project is short on atmospheric chills, these royalty free throwback tracks might just do the trick.Much has been said about the wide range of pop culture influences found throughout 2016’s smash hit Stranger Things. In addition to respectful nods to the likes of Steven Spielberg and Stephen King, creators the Duffer Brothers looked to the past for musical inspiration as well.“We always wanted the music to play a major role in the show. Very early on, we decided that we needed an entirely electronic score. Electronic music is making a major comeback right now and we’re loving it. Specifically, we’re obsessed with Cliff Martinez’s work on The Knick, as well as Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’ work for David Fincher. Their electronic soundtracks, while very modern and cutting-edge, also inevitably evoke the sounds of ’80s music (most notably Tangerine Dream, Vangelis, and John Carpenter). So we felt that having a synth soundtrack would do exactly what we wanted to achieve with the show: It would feel both modern and nostalgic at the same time.” — The Duffer Brothers via Entertainment WeeklyWhen it cam time to score the episodes, the Duffers turned to Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein of the Austin, Texas synth outfit, S U R V I V E.“We came upon S U R V I V E from the soundtrack to Adam Wingard’s The Guest. We used one of their songs in that little trailer we cut together. So of course when it came time to actually find a composer, they were one of the first names to pop in our heads.”  — The Duffer Brothers via ComplexIf you’re looking to apply some retro-synth vibe to your next project, you won’t have to worry about hiring an indie act to write a score from scratch. The songs below (handpicked by the PremiumBeat music team) are brimming with dark 80s atmosphere. And with a PremiumBeat standard license, you won’t need to worry about copyright issues.Cover image via Make It Strangerlast_img read more

Rajasthan Cong. urges Rahul to continue as party president

first_imgAmid the bickering over the party’s rout in Lok Sabha elections, the Rajasthan Pradesh Congress’s executive committee on Wednesday passed a resolution requesting Rahul Gandhi to continue as the Congress president and authorised him to carry out organisational changes in the party’s State unit, if needed.AICC general secretary in charge of Rajasthan Avinash Pande said after the PCC meeting at the party’s State headquarters here — the first after the declaration of election results in which it lost all the 25 Lok Sabha seats in the State — that the “spirit of struggle and commitment to principles” remained unchanged despite the defeat.“The executive committee has accepted all the challenges, failures and shortcomings which led to this mandate… It is our collective responsibility,” Mr. Pande said, while indicating that there would be no immediate changes in the party’s State leadership.In its hour-long meeting attended by PCC president and Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot, CM Ashok Gehlot, State Ministers and the party’s election candidates and office-bearers, the PCC endorsed the Congress Working Committee’s resolution passed in New Delhi on May 25, which had asked Mr. Gandhi to continue in office.While the executive committee reposed faith in Mr. Gandhi’s leadership, there was no discussion at the meeting on the factors responsible for the party’s humiliating defeat in the State, where it could not win even a single seat despite its victory in the Assembly polls barely five months ago. PCC vice-president Archana Sharma said the matter would be discussed in other meetings to be convened shortly.No reference was made to the purported resignation of Agriculture Minister Lalchand Kataria and the demand raised by Ministers Udai Lal Anjana and Ramesh Meena for introspection and a detailed analysis of the defeat. Uncertaintly prevailed over Mr. Kataria’s “resignation letter”, which was released to the media on WhatsApp, as he was unreachable.BSP supportMeanwhile, the Bahujan Samaj Party has announced that it will continue to support the Congress government in the State in order to “stop communal and casteist forces”. The six BSP MLAs elected in the 2018 Assembly polls have extended support to the State government.BSP vice-president Ramji Gautam said in a statement that the party chief Mayawati had instructed the MLAs not to go against the party’s ideology or play into the hands of communal forces. Any MLA flouting the instructions would be expelled from the party, he warned.last_img read more
