The house was designed so all of the main areas have a view of the ocean, the first floor rests over a concrete plinth which serves as a parking space and secures (attaches) the house to the ground.Save this picture!© Felipe CantillanaWe can see the exterior stairs on one side of the house, leading to a foyer, which is a hallway as well as entry hall. This foyer has a unique feature: a sliding door that separates this hallway, which receives the circulation flow, from the common areas of the house. On one hand, we have the dining area and the kitchen, the latter located to the back of the house; and on the other side, the living room area that works as a passageway towards the guest room.Save this picture!SectionAlthough the common areas are in the same space, we aimed for details that create privacy which allows independence, the fireplace is strategically set to distinguish living room from the dining area, as well as keeping both spaces warm at the same time. The second floor is the master bedroom, ample surrounding so the owners feel comfortable with generous spaces that compose the room, closet and bathroom. Always having in mind the panoramic views, even when in the shower. Privacy and lighting are taken into account using latticework and eaves; to the main facade we added sliding latticework partition, thus allowing control of the sunlight as desired. We also created exterior transit areas surrounding all of the house, having in mind the social events that usually occur in beach houses, thus creating a natural blend of the interior with the exterior so guests and house owners can enjoy outside activities as well. (bonfire, gazebo, barbecue, exterior shower, area for surfboards and wetsuits etc).Save this picture!© Felipe CantillanaProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Curious Design Enigmas of Chichén Itzá’s Temple of KukulkánArticles18 Different Projects That Feature the Color GreenArticles Share RIOS House / Altamarea arquitectura Area:  160 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project last_img read more

Contrastingly, the response to the park on the south is completely open and it is the dialogue between the built form and park that changes from space to space. The double height wooden decked south verandah opens up vertically to welcome the tall branches in, while the master bedroom frames another old tree trunk.Save this picture!© Fabien CharuauOne of the most interesting elements is the folded plate Mild steel and wood staircase that flanks the concrete fins, and runs vertically on all 3 levels. Its strategic location to the north was necessary in order to open up the living spaces and bedrooms at each level to unobstructed south views of the Park, while intelligently shielding views to the north. While moving through this spine there are views of the park through square cutouts on each level. Conversely from the living areas the square cutouts frame the staircase and fins like a graphic artwork, almost negating the need of a painting.Save this picture!© Fabien CharuauSave this picture!Plan – First floorThe materials used outside were a response to the dense natural vegetation surrounding the house. We wanted to use tactile materials that would be in harmony with nature. The concrete, corten steel, ribbed wood and polished cement all have a textural quality to them, and feel warm when juxtaposed with the surrounding green.The interior shell has large swathes of polished kota stone, ribbed timber on the ceiling and sustainable wood door and window frames through the house.Save this picture!© Fabien CharuauThe carpet area of 8000 sft is spatially organized as follows. The ground floor comprises public spaces like the foyer, informal and formal living rooms, the dining room , Kitchen, a guest bedroom and a generous South Verandah overlooking the park. The first floor has an open family room, the master bedroom and 2 children’s rooms. Finally the second floor has the third children’s room, an entertainment lounge leading to a large open terrace.Save this picture!Cross sectionThe plinth of the house which sits 8ft above the road due to its contoured site is negotiated gently via steps flanked by a series of layered concrete and corten steel walls. The 5-bedroom house on 3 levels orients itself and takes advantage of the views on east and south, and is always in conversation with the surrounding green.Save this picture!© Fabien CharuauProject gallerySee allShow less600 Church Street Building / Wood MarshSelected ProjectsHouse in Kyoto / 07BEACHSelected Projects Share 2021 CopyHouses•Bengaluru, India Contractor: Architects: Khosla Associates Area Area of this architecture project India ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/962683/house-by-the-park-khosla-associates Clipboard Hi-Tech Constructions Save this picture!© Fabien Charuau+ 24Curated by Hana Abdel Share Manufacturers: Bathroom fixtures, Kitchen and Wardrobes, Kota Stone Flooring, Ritikaa Woods, Wooden Flooring “COPY” Year:  Area:  93 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs House by the Park / Khosla Associates “COPY” CopyAbout this officeKhosla AssociatesOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBengaluruKhosla AssociatesOn FacebookIndiaPublished on June 05, 2021Cite: “House by the Park / Khosla Associates” 05 Jun 2021.

Why did Obama visit Asia?

first_imgCalifornia Nurses protest against TPP.Barack Obama didn’t go to China and Laos just to say hello. The president’s trip was part of the Pentagon’s “Asian pivot.”The U.S. Navy’s Seventh Fleet continues to throttle the Pacific Ocean like it was Lake Michigan. Since 2009, 19,000 more U.S. troops have been sent to Japan while 9,000 more GIs are being stationed in Hawaii. (Wall Street Journal, Sept. 7)The Pentagon is trying to install its provocative THAAD missile system in both U.S.-occupied south Korea and Japan. THAAD is a so-called anti-missile system.These dangerous war measures are aimed at both the People’s Republic of China and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. Yet Wall Street’s war machine is confronting a different Asia than what existed 50 years ago.At a cost of millions of lives, Vietnam and Laos defeated the genocidal U.S. invasion of their countries. Working people in Japan and south Korea are fighting to stop the installation of THAAD missiles.On Sept. 8 — the last day of Obama’s trip — the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea marked the 68th anniversary of its founding by conducting a successful test of a nuclear device. Despite U.S. economic sanctions aimed at starving it into submission, People’s Korea will continue to develop technologically to defend itself by any means necessary.Trans-Pacific povertyObama traveled first to the G-20 Leaders’ Summit in Hangzhou, China, to sell the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP). China is now a larger manufacturer than the United States. But China is excluded from the TPP and the TPP is basically an anti-China economic bloc.The corporate media largely ignored this fact and emphasized instead the phony issue of whether the staircase provided for President Obama’s plane deboarding was a deliberate insult.The capitalist world market has made massive inroads into the People’s Republic of China. Foreign and Chinese capitalists exploit millions of Chinese workers. Yet the commanding heights of the Chinese economy — including the banks — are still controlled by the socialist state run by a Communist Party of 90 million members.That’s why the Chinese economy has rapidly grown even since the outbreak of capitalism’s latest economic crisis in 2008.Both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton claim to oppose the TPP, although Clinton had earlier called it the “gold standard” of trade pacts. Super racist Trump wants to pit U.S. workers against even poorer workers in Asia, Africa and Latin America.“Free trade” treaties like the TPP and the North American Free Trade Agreement are really colonial trade agreements. NAFTA stole hundreds of thousands of factory jobs from U.S. workers and exploits lower-paid Mexican workers in maquiladoras.But the biggest victims of NAFTA were millions of Mexican farming families forced off their land by the cheap corn exports from U.S. agribusiness.Only the solidarity of workers everywhere will be able to fight back against the capitalist monopolies.Pills cost pennies; profits cost livesNeither Trump nor Clinton points out that the TPP will protect the super profits of pharmaceutical giants like Pfizer and Merck. According to D.G. Shah, secretary general of the Indian Pharmaceutical Alliance, the TPP would allow drug patents to be extended by at least five years.This prevents affordable generic versions from being sold. The Swiss drug outfit Novartis extended its patent on the high-priced Gleevec cancer medication even longer. (Intellectual Property Watch, Feb. 12, 2015)Protecting drug company profits at the expense of human life is nothing new for U.S. capitalist politicians. In 1998, President Bill Clinton fired 14 cruise missiles at the Al-Shifa pharmaceutical plant in Sudan, destroying the African country’s only maker of anti-tuberculosis drugs.Vice President Albert Gore told South African President Nelson Mandela that the U.S. wouldn’t tolerate legislation providing lower-cost drugs to fight HIV/AIDS.The liberation hero Mandela — who was captured by the apartheid regime in 1962 with information supplied by the CIA — wouldn’t back down and was sued by U.S. and European drug giants.Anthony Podesta was a top lobbyist for the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America, which also sued Mandela. (Guardian, Dec. 18, 1999) His brother and former business partner John Podesta was then President Bill Clinton’s chief of staff and is currently Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager.Black America and the PhilippinesThe capitalist media also went overtime on the sexist remark made by Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte towards President Barack Obama. This was particularly unfortunate, since it allowed racists to ridicule the only Black president in U.S. history. Duterte later apologized.President Duterte’s popularity in his country is based on being the first Philippine leader in a century to refuse to bow down to U.S. imperialism. Duterte has resumed peace talks with the leftist National Democratic Front and has demanded that U.S. Special Forces leave Mindanao province.Duterte has also released from prison liberation fighters Benito Tiamzon and Wilma Tiamzon, the alleged military leaders of the New People’s Army. The NPA has declared a cease-fire. The two released prisoners have joined the peace talks being conducted with the Philippine military in Europe.None of these actions is to the liking of the brass hats in the Pentagon.African Americans and Filipinos share a common heritage of being victims of racist mass murder. After the U.S. declared war on Spain in 1898, the McKinley administration urged Philippine independence leader Emilio Aguinaldo to return to the Philippines, then a Spanish colony. Philippine freedom fighters soon defeated the Spanish colonial army and surrounded Manila.President McKinley double-crossed Aguinaldo and declared the Philippines a U.S. colony. One million Filipinos were killed by U.S. Army massacres and disease. Gen. Jacob Smith declared, “I want no prisoners, I wish you to kill and burn: the more you kill and burn, the better you will please me.”These massacres went hand-in-hand with at least a hundred African Americans being lynched annually in the early 1900s. The favorite term of U.S. racists for Filipinos was “n——r.” (U.S. War Crimes in the Philippines, worldfuturefund.org)McKinley’s double-cross of Filipinos was like the betrayal of African Americans in 1877, when President Rutherford Hayes ended Reconstruction and returned the South to racist rule.During the 1898 war, David Fagen was one of the Black GIs who went over to fight for Philippine freedom. U.S. officers put a price of $800 on the African American’s head and some reports say he was executed, although others say he escaped. (“The Philippine War — A Conflict of Conscience for African Americans,” National Park Service, 2016)Long live the unity of African-American and Philippine freedom fighters.

Perdue Credits Trade Negotiators on USMCA Break

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Perdue Credits Trade Negotiators on USMCA Break Previous articleDecember WASDE Report Mostly UnchangedNext articleExtreme Weather Leads to Silage Mycotoxin Concerns Gary Truitt SHARE Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Dec 10, 2019 House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Tuesday that an agreement had been reached to move USMCA towards passage. Pelosi took credit for crafting the deal, but Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue said it was U.S. trade negotiators that finally broke an agreement between the U.S. and Mexico.“Ambassador Lighthizer was working very hard last week, and hopefully we’ve gotten some resolution between what the enforceability provisions that had been wanted by some and Mexico,” said Perdue.Perdue said it was the issue of enforceability of the agreement that was the final sticking point.“Honestly I think these enforceability arguments have been more of a smokescreen of a delay than anything else,” he said.Washington sources say the House could pass the final trade agreement before the Christmas recess.

Nuns accused of embezzling $500K removed from public ministry, religious order says

first_imgKABC-TV(LOS ANGELES) — Two nuns accused of embezzling at least $500,000 in tuition, fees and donations from a Southern California Catholic school have been removed from public ministry, according to the religious order they were serving under.Sister Mary Margaret Kreuper and Sister Lana Chang allegedly stole the funds by depositing checks for tuition and fees for the St. James Catholic School in Redondo Beach — about 20 miles southwest of Los Angeles — into a “long forgotten” bank account opened in 1997, The Press-Telegram, a Long Beach, California-based newspaper, reported. The sisters were the only two who knew about the bank account, according to the local newspaper. They allegedly used some of the money to go on trips and gamble at casinos, a spokesperson for the Archdiocese of New York told ABC News over the weekend.Kreuper, the school principal, would handle all checks made out to the school for tuition and fees before handing them over to bookkeeping for processing, according to The Press-Telegram. The nuns have been removed from their residence and placed in a religious house under the supervision of community leadership, the religious order they belong to, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, said in a statement.The half-million figure only represents what auditors have been able to trace in six years’ worth of bank records and may not include cash transactions, the Archdiocese of Los Angeles told parents at an alumni meeting last week, according to The Press-Telegram. Both nuns retired earlier this year. They “take full responsibility for the choices they made and are subject to the law,” the order said.Although Monsignor Michael Meyers, pastor for the school, initially wrote in his letter that the Archdiocese of Los Angeles did not wish to pursue criminal proceedings, the Archdiocese has since filed a criminal complaint with the Torrance Police Department, the order wrote in its statement. Other staff members at the church were not implicated, Meyers wroteThe Torrance Police Department did not immediately return ABC News’ request for comment. The order plans to pay all the money back once a final sum of what was taken has been determined, it said.“We are unable to confirm any sum until the discovery phase is completed,” the order said. “We intend to make restitution to St. James School as soon as a total is known. Justice demands this of us.” The order apologized for the nuns’ actions.“The Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet are concerned and saddened by this situation and regret any pain this has caused many in our Church, especially the families connected to St. James School,” they said. “We hold the sorrow of our Sisters’ actions deep in our community hearts.”No student or program has “suffered any loss of educational resources, opportunities, or innovations” as a result of the misappropriation of funds, Meyers wrote to parents, emphasizing that their children’s education “has not and will not be affected by these events.”ABC News could not reach Kreuper or Chang for comment. It is unclear if they have retained attorneys.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

2 feet of snow slams the Dakotas, California fires rage on

first_imgABC News(LOS ANGELES) — A Red Flag Warning is in effect through 6 p.m. for Los Angeles and the surrounding area. Santa Ana winds are making it difficult for firefighters to contain the raging wildfires in California. Any new or existing fires are likely to spread and with wind gusts up to 20 mph and relative humidity as low as 3% to 5%.Winds are expected to calm down later this evening, which will reduce the fire risk overnight into Sunday.A Blizzard warning is in effect until 1 p.m. Saturday for eastern North Dakota and parts of northwestern Minnesota. Heavy, wet snow is reportedly making it difficult for plows to clear roadways.Up to 2 feet of snow has already fallen across parts of the Northern Plains with new snowfall amounts of 3 to 10 inches expected through Saturday night.In addition to snow, we are expecting wind gusts to 60 mph at times. This will cause blizzard conditions and reduce visibility, making driving dangerous particularly along I-29 and I-94.By Sunday the system begins to weaken but will bring rain to the Upper Great Lakes before winding down Sunday night.Many Americans from the Rockies to the Gulf are waking up to the coldest air of the season Saturday morning. Wind chill values are in the single digits for Yellowstone National Park, the twenties for Chicago and the thirties in parts of Texas.Coastal Flood Alerts are effective through noon Saturday for parts of the Mid Atlantic.As Subtropical Storm Melissa lingers roughly 250 miles SSE of Nantucket Massachusetts, it will bring gusty winds up to 40mph to the Northeast and minor coastal flooding around high tide for the affected communities.Melissa is expected to become a remnant low late Saturday into early Sunday and conditions will improve.
