A typical neighborhood, like any other neighborhood in Vorarlberg’s Rhine Valley, characterizes the environment of the new building. All this are visible signs of an urban sprawl. Faceless places built with scattered settlements and single- family homes are signs of an emerging urbanization and densification of the Rhine Valley.Save this picture!© Rasmus NorlanderThe property was originally developed by a two-storey family house in the style of the old Rhine Valley houses. A fire destroyed the old building years ago. Due to the given size and form of the land – the narrowest point shows only a width of approximately 10.5m – and the access for the fire service for the eastern neighbours on the other side, the possibilities for a multi-storey building were limited .Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe most promising solution was a single-floor-house with courtyard, which integrates the exterior spaces to extend the internal spaces to the plot boundary. With the terrace on top of the house the whole neighborhood can be overseen. Its easy to relax here and to get as much sunlight as possible all day long.Save this picture!© Rasmus NorlanderThe living and dining areas in the building are defined as open and flowing spaces. The private rooms are grouped together at the rear end of the building. All rooms are connected by the outer courtyard, which in summer is used as an additional living area. The house is heated by gas with underfloor heating. Water heating is supported by solar panels. The floors and the primary structure of the ground floor are built in concrete. The building is founded with micropiles.Save this picture!SectionThe property is surrounded with a 1.80 m high concrete wall that defines a protected outdoor area. The facade and the wall is made of exposed concrete with wood texture. Save this picture!© Rasmus NorlanderProject gallerySee allShow lessArquine Presents: MEXTROPOLI 2015EventVideos: Bjarke Ingels on His Europa City Project for ParisArchitecture News Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/585736/house-g-bechter-zaffignani-architekten Clipboard 2014 “COPY” Year:  Save this picture!© Rasmus Norlander+ 10 Share Projects CopyAbout this officeBechter Zaffignani ArchitektenOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesAustriaPublished on January 12, 2015Cite: “House G / Bechter Zaffignani Architekten” 12 Jan 2015.

Cuba supporters win in IFCO victory over IRS

first_imgHere is a slightly edited statement issued by the Interreligious Foundation for Community Organization. Workers World congratulates IFCO on this victory over U.S. government harassment, especially because of IFCO’s important work in support of revolutionary Cuba. WW celebrates the beginning of Cuba’s 61st year as a liberated, independent country working to establish socialism. On Jan. 1, 1959, Comandante Fidel Castro and a guerilla force, including Ernesto “Che” Guevara, entered Havana, marking the triumph of the first stage of the Cuban revolution. We also celebrate the fifth anniversary of the freeing of the Cuban Five — Gerardo Hernández, Antonio Guerrero, Ramón Labañino, Fernando González and René González — Cuban patriots imprisoned by the U.S. government for actions defending Cuba; the last were finally freed in December 2014.Rev. Lucius Walker, founder of IFCO/Pastors for Peace, prepares to break the U.S. blockade of Cuba as he loads supplies for the 2010 Friendshipment Caravan.Victory! After a 10-year historic struggle against unprecedented [Internal Revenue Service] harassment, we’ve won! The IRS finally conceded and reinstated our 501c(3) non-profit status.We want to thank all of you who helped make this IFCO victory possible.In the words of our attorney, this reinstatement is a clear vindication of IFCO’s principled stand to serve as a fiscal sponsor of the Viva Palestina project that provided desperately needed medical aid for the beleaguered people of Gaza. The IRS concession absolves our righteous decision to stand in solidarity with the people of Cuba and to engage in prayerful civil disobedience of the U.S. government’s unjust and criminal blockade of the island nation. This ruling justifies our steadfast commitment to defend the rights of the disenfranchised, the wrongly imprisoned, and the victims of police brutality.In the last 10 years, we’ve never let the powers that be stop our life-giving work: Challenging the immoral U.S. blockade of Cuba and unconstitutional U.S. travel restrictions with our solidarity caravans and delegations – and winning; Supporting the work of sister progressive organizations from Haitian Women for Haitian Refugees to South Bronx Unite, from the Free Mumia Abu-Jamal Coalition to the Campaign to End Sanctions; Administering the US/ELAM [Latin American Medical School] scholarship program that has graduated nearly 200 U.S. doctors who are now working in underserved communities across the U.S. (For more information: ifconews.org/medical-school.)Ever since [its founding in] 1967, IFCO has been saying “NO” to injustice. Ever since 1967, IFCO has been attacking and exposing the systems which cause racism, hunger and suffering – both in the U.S. and throughout the world.Support and words of encouragement have allowed us: To keep sending young people to study medicine in Cuba, to mentor them during their seven years of study and after they return home to practice in underserved communities; To keep organizing Caravans to Cuba — we’ve already begun the work for next spring’s Caravan — 10 routes in 50 cities around the U.S. , [with] travel to Cuba next summer; To organize delegations to travel throughout the year to have deep discussions and insightful visits to learn about specific areas of Cuban life and culture: health care, education, religion, farming, incarceration, the justice system and more; To work with others to organize against U.S.-sponsored sanctions — a form of warfare designed to harm children, the sick, the aging — warfare waged against the most vulnerable people in a country.For more information on IFCO programs: ifconews.org.

Tenth Mexican journalist murdered, after cut in funding for protection

first_img Follow the news on Mexico Another journalist was murdered in Mexico just a day after Reporters Without Borders (RSF) was alarmed to learn of the Mexican government’s plans to slash funding for the protection of journalists. RSF again call on the government to step up protection. MexicoAmericas Protecting journalists DisappearancesImpunityFreedom of expressionViolence 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies Help by sharing this information MexicoAmericas Protecting journalists DisappearancesImpunityFreedom of expressionViolence September 21, 2018 – Updated on September 25, 2018 Tenth Mexican journalist murdered, after cut in funding for protection Organisation NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say RSF_en Reporter murdered in northwestern Mexico’s Sonora state April 28, 2021 Find out morecenter_img Receive email alerts Reports News Mario Leonel Gómez Sánchez was gunned down by men on a motorcycle in the street as he was left his home in Yajalón, in the southern state of Chiapas, on 21 September. Aged 40, he was a correspondent for the regional daily El Heraldo, often covering crime and the increase in violence in the region.Since 2010, Gómez had been receiving regular death threats and anonymous messages telling him to stop covering cases of alleged corruption implicating municipal officials. He had filed three complaints with the Chiapas authorities and had requested protection.The Chiapas state prosecutor told RSF that two police bodyguards were assigned to Gómez in September 2017 but were withdrawn at his own request in December 2017. This was contradicted by his family, which said he was given protection in 2016 only to see it quickly withdrawn the same year without any reason being given.Gómez’s death brings the number of journalists murdered this year in Mexico to ten, seven of whom were killed in direct connection with their journalistic activities. RSF is still investigating the most recent cases.The day before Sánchez’s murder, the Consultative Council for the Federal Mechanism for the Protection of Human Rights Defenders and Journalists confirmed at a press conference in Mexico City that the government was cutting back funding for protection. Created in 2012, the Federal Mechanism is attached to Mexico’s interior ministry, known as SEGOB.“This latest murder has highlighted the government’s lack of will to rein in the spiral of violence that has afflicted Mexico’s journalists for years, and the need to maintain and even reinforce the Protection Mechanism,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “The authorities must respect the commitments they gave in 2017, after Javier Valdez’s death, or else they will become accomplices to the next acts of violence against journalists.”The Mechanism is currently operating more than 3,500 protective measures for journalists and human rights defenders in danger. The measures include police escorts, surveillance cameras, reception centres and alarm devices. Some of these protective measures could now be suspended and new requests for protection rejected. Of the 126 million pesos sought by the Consultative Council to cover – until the end of the year – protective measures for the Mechanism’s 727 current beneficiaries (who include 302 journalists), SEGOB has for the time being approved only 76 million. It confirms that outgoing President Enrique Peña Nieto’s government has no interest in providing journalists with better protection.The Mechanism’s 2019 budget is due to be approved by the Mexican congress in December, shortly after President-elect Manuel López Obrador is sworn in. It will then be up to López Obrador to decide whether to adopt a full and effective policy for protecting journalists and preventing attacks against them, as requested by RSFduring the election campaign.The United Nations High Commission for Human Rights, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, Mexico’s National Human Rights Commission (CNDH) and many local and international press freedom NGOs have also voiced concern about the Mechanism’s future.Mexico is ranked 147th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index.

However, the reversal was not enough to bring home prices down a notch.The 3 percent annual gain in housing inventory in October is the first “meaningful” increase in inventory since December 2014, Zillow said in its October 2018 Market Report. It is the first time inventory has increased by more than 1 percent in that time.Meanwhile, home prices appear unaffected, continuing their climb with a 7.7 percent increase over the year in October, matching September’s gain and remaining within the 7.5 percent to 8 percent range home price growth has maintained thus far for 2018, according to Zillow.Rents, on the other hand, experienced a very slight decline of 0.1 percent, taking the median national rent down by $1 to $1,442 for the month of October.While the October rise in inventory is notable, Zillow said, “The boost comes nowhere near making up for years of inventory declines.”In December 2014, the last time the market experienced a rise in inventory, national housing inventory totaled 1.96 million. In October, Zillow calculated 1.62 million homes for sale.With this in mind, perhaps it is no surprise that home values did not seem to note the change in inventory. “Possibly because inventory gains have a long way to go before they make up for years of declines, home values continue to grow steadily,” the Zillow report read.The market with the greatest increase in inventory was also the market that charted the greatest increase in home value over the year in October. Having claimed the national spotlight of late for high home values, that accolade goes to San Jose, California, where inventory increased a notable 93.1 percent over the year in October while home prices rose 17.9 percent. The median home value in San Jose is now $1.3 million. San Jose has ranked highest among large metros for home value gains for 13 straight months, according to Zillow.Inventory also grew in other hot California markets. Following San Jose, the second-greatest increase in inventory occurred in San Diego, where there were 43.5 percent more homes for sale than a year earlier, and San Francisco, where there were 41.6 percent more homes on the market.On the other hand, housing inventory decreased by 15.9 percent in Las Vegas, more than any other metro. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania followed with a 10 percent decline, followed by Virginia Beach, Virginia, with a 9.4 percent decline.While ranking highest for falling inventory, Las Vegas claimed the second spot for home value gains with a 14.7 percent increase over the year in October. However, at just $276,200, its median home value remains well below that of San Jose.

Ryan Serhant rents Lower Manhattan penthouse for $15K

first_imgCelebrity broker Ryan Serhant is listing his Hudson Square penthouse. (Serhant)Ryan Serhant has been busy of late, launching and staffing his own brokerage and opening a Soho HQ for it. Now, he’s making another big move — this time, to Brooklyn.In preparation for their move to the Boerum Hill townhouse they bought in 2018, Serhant and his wife, Emilia Bechrakis, have listed their Hudson Square penthouse as a $15,000-a-month rental, People reported. The 2,000-square-foot unit in the Renwick Modern condo development has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a home office and two terraces.Serhant purchased the apartment in 2014 for just under $3.8 million. He’s also the agent for the property, which is listed through his eponymous brokerage.Serhant told the publication that he and Bechrakis had gut-renovated the space and would “miss waking up here every day.”ADVERTISEMENTBut they probably won’t miss it too much: The couple are relocating to the Boerum Hill townhouse they picked up from author Jonathan Safran-Foer for $7.6 million and have since been renovating, a process Serhant documents on Instagram. Recently, he posted a photo with Bechrakis, noting that they’d be moving in “very soon.”[People] — Amy PlittContact Amy Plitt Email Address* Message* Share via Shortlink Full Name*center_img Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Tags Luxury Real EstateResidential Real Estateryan serhantlast_img read more

DNV GL unveils concept for live asset risk assessment using digital twins

first_img Image: DNV GL has unveiled the Probabilistic Digital Twin (PDT) concept at Offshore Europe 2019.Photo: courtesy of DNV GL. A digital twin is a digital “mirror” of a physical asset, including models of its structure and dynamics which are updated through a combination of multiple data sources. They bring significant benefits for data management and decision making, providing a consistent, accurate single source of information.Risk models are rarely brought forward into operations – they typically exist separately within engineering, operations and health and safety disciplines – and are mostly used in desk studies, based on analyzing historical data and offering only a static picture of potential risks.In reality, risk is dynamic, varying in time with operational conditions and the condition of the asset, but this is not captured by current risk models which are seldom updated and lack real-time and prediction capabilities.Liv A. Hovem, CEO, DNV GL – Oil & Gas said: “A single, unscheduled downtime event can cost from $2 to $5 million per day – better and up-to-date risk information may significantly reduce unplanned or unnecessary downtime.“Our proposed Probabilistic Digital Twin is designed to bring risk analysis into ‘live’ use. Their creation would add a layer of probabilistic risk modelling to existing digital twins, capturing uncertainty, the effect of new knowledge and actual conditions on operational performance and safety.“By providing a more up-to-date and asset-specific risk picture, a PDT allows operators to adjust operations or take preventive actions to maintain an acceptable risk level at all times. This will enhance safety and reduce expensive downtime.”The Probabilistic Digital Twin concept was unveiled at Offshore Europe 2019, by; Dr. Frank Børre Pedersen, Programme director Oil & Gas at DNV GL’s Group Technology and Research unit; and senior research scientist Dr. Andreas Hafver.“DNV GL is prepared for a future where our clients will have digital twins of all their assets, having encouraged their use in multiple industries. Many of our clients are building and maintaining digital twins of their assets. The PDT allows us and our clients to take advantage of all the information such twins contain to improve risk assessments,” said Frank Børre Pedersen.“The Probabilistic Digital Twin is not an alternative, but an evolution of the digital twin – expanding it into the risk analysis space. It is a new way of delivering risk analysis – continuously and in a digital format, adding more value in day-to-day decision making.”A PDT may include reliability and degradation models to predict the remaining lifetime of mechanical components. However, it is more than a predictive maintenance tool. Risk is not only about component failures, but also about exposure to hazards and how the asset is operated. A PDT can say something about the overall impact on safety, by combining reliability models with models of the hazard exposure and the consequences if something goes wrong.The main elements which distinguish a probabilistic digital twin from traditional digital twins are:Probabilistic degradation and failure models, reflecting uncertainty and variability of conditions and processes that affect performance and lead to failures.Logic and relational models, relating performance variables to failures and loss events.Surrogate models, approximating heavier simulation models, allowing fast queries and enabling propagation of uncertainty and model coupling. Source: Company Press Release DNV GL proposes the “Probabilistic Digital Twin” (PDT) to close the gap between digital twins – used increasingly by operators to manage the performance of their assets – and risk analysis still largely conducted manually before assets enter servicelast_img read more

Small entertainer still at large

first_imgThe victim of violent assault and theft was left lying on the ground at the St Hugh’s Ball in the early hours of last Sunday morning. The attacker, who was wearing a top hat, is believed to have been dressed as a juggler.The sequence of events leading up to the assault begun in jest, but took an ominous turn when the student, who wished to remain anonymous, was hit so forcefully that she was knocked to the ground. Following this, her phone was allegedly snatched by the same stranger who had just hit her.The student explained what happened: “We were standing near to the stranger and my friends thought it would be funny to take his top hat. It was done instantaneously, in a jovial manner.“As soon as my friends had ran away with the hat, the man aggressively turned on me. I told him I did not know who the other girls were who had taken his hat. I just said this because I was scared of his aggressive manner.”It was after this that the alleged assault took place. The student said, “I was holding my phone in my hand and he tried to wrestle it from me. Suddenly I felt some kind of hit, which knocked me to the ground. I was completely in shock as he ran off with my phone. By the time I had picked myself up, he had gone.”The assault took place at around 2.30am in the main marquee, while the Queen tribute band was playing. After the assault, the student was taken by the security guard to receive first aid. She has subsequently reported the incident to the police who are treating it as “snatch theft”.It is believed that the stranger was much too old to be a student. The victim of the assault recalled that her assailant had a shaved head with stubble, and was of particularly small stature.The other distinguishing feature about the stranger was his large top hat. The ball committee are currently in possession of this hat, which they are treating as a vital piece of evidence in their search for the stranger. The hat was handed to Eleanor Hale, President of the Ball Committee, at the end of the evening. Hale said, “I think it is really unlikely for the mugger to have been another student. He may have been a gatecrasher, but the fact that he had a hat – the one that the juggler was wearing – means he may well have been one of the jugglers.”The student had been working at the St Hugh’s Ball as an assistant supervisor at the main stage until 11pm. Jeff Pole was in charge of the staff on the night, and has been involved in identifying the culprit. He said, “Quite a few people on the ball committee think it could be a juggler. We want to track down who the culprit was, and we are definitely going to follow this up.”Zoe Burges, who was in charge of entertainment on the ball committee, urged caution in jumping to conclusions. She said, “The hat is very similar to that of our entertainment people. The problem is that anyone could have been wearing the hat – an audience member perhaps.” She confirmed that the committee had been in contact with various entertainment companies in an attempt to identify the mystery attacker.A spokesperson from Thames Valley Police said, “The incident was reported to us on Monday the 10th April. We were notified of an incident which occurred on Sunday 9th April at 2.30am at St Hugh’s College on St Margarets Road.“The offender became aggressive and is believed to have hit the aggrieved, knocking her to the ground, and taking her mobile phone. We are treating the incident as robbery, specifically as snatch theft.“We certainly will be launching an investigation into finding the culprit, and we will pursue all avenues of enquiry.”Speaking of the ball in general, Eleanor Hale said, “Everything went really well, there was a really positive atmosphere. There was a bit of jostling at the tea party, and a few people were ejected due to drunkenness, but this violent mugging was a completely isolated incident.”last_img read more
