With an area of 220m², the project organizes social, private and service space under a single cover. Two perimeter beams, longitudinal, in reinforced concrete, lead the structure to the ends that, resting on 4 pillars, allow untying between roof and block. The sparse configuration creates the possibility for zenith lighting and integral cross ventilation while the aerial section of one of the beams that crosses the central atrium, blocks direct sunlight to the living environments, allows for sunshine in the pool and garden.Save this picture!© Daniel SantoSave this picture!AxonometricSave this picture!© Daniel SantoThe atrium, placed as an interlocutor between the project’s programs, absorbs the permeability of the areas, decompressing the dense integration in a plot with an area of 360m². The layout of the house’s compartments are interposed by the living area and connected by central and lateral accesses allowing unobstructed path through all areas, filled or idle. There is a concern to dismantle the limits between building and lot, reconfiguring the permeable areas and taking the landscape to the final itinerary of the residence.Save this picture!© Daniel SantoSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Daniel SantoThe materiality printed in the house leads the general context to the uniqueness, enabling dialogue between the elements and discontinuing the spaces with delicacy. The apparent concrete of the structure rests on a block of miracema stones and on gray metallic panels, allowing clarity in the perception of architectural elements and how they behave within the integrality of the project.Save this picture!© Daniel SantoProject gallerySee allShow lessCromwell Place Exhibition and Working Space / Buckley Gray YeomanSelected Projects7 Louisiana Channel Interviews Exploring the Architecture, Thoughts and Design Value…Architecture News Share “COPY” Save this picture!© Daniel Santo+ 33Curated by Matheus Pereira Share Photographs Paulo Renato Lemes da Silva CopyHouses, House Interiors•Bauru, Brazil CopyAbout this officegruta.arquitetosOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsBauruBrazilPublished on November 29, 2020Cite: “A6 House / gruta.arquitetos” [Casa A6 / gruta.arquitetos] 29 Nov 2020.

first_img RSF_en Nepal: RSF’s recommendations to amend controversial Media Council Bill News NepalAsia – Pacific News May 29, 2019 Find out more Nepalese journalists threatened, attacked and censored over Covid-19 coverage Receive email alerts NepalAsia – Pacific Under Chinese pressure, Nepal sanctions three journalists over Dalai Lama story 07.08.2002Journalist Kishor Shrestha has said that his arrest on charges of libel was just a pretext and that, while being interrogated, a police officer threatened him with reprisals if he continued to write about the death in detention of Krishna Sen, editor of the pro-Maoist publication Janadesh. Itwas Shrestha’s publication Jana Aastha which, citing unidentified confidential sources, first reported that Krisha Sen had died while under torture by the country’s security forces. The authorities continue to deny his death. According to the Committee to Protect Journalists, a commission of enquiry sent a report on the case to the Minister of Interior at the end of July, but its findings have not yet been published._________________________________________________________________Kishor Shrestha, managing editor of the Nepalese weekly Jana Aastha and Bishnu Gimire, managing editor of the daily Janapraha were arrested on 4 August and freed the next day by police in Katmandu.Shrestha was accused of publishing “defamatory news” while Ghimire was accused of using his newspaper for blackmail.”Once again the authorities are misusing powers under the state of emergency to mount a witch-hunt against journalists. These latest arrests have but one aim, which is to intimidate a critical press”, said Robert Ménard, General Secretary of Reporters Without Borders, in a letter to Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba. The organisation urged him to bring a halt to arrests of journalists and to immediately free those imprisoned in connection with their work.Reporters Without Borders pointed out that more journalists are in prison in Nepal than in any other country in the world.According to information obtained by Reporters Without Borders, Kishor Shrestha, managing editor of the extreme left-wing weekly Jana Aastha (The People’s faith) was arrested by police on 4 August 2002 at his office in Katmandu and then taken to a police post at Hanumandhoka. After announcing that he could be charged with “defamation” the police released him after 24 hours in detention.His newspaper had published an article accusing a senior police detective, Ram Chandra Khanal, of corruption. The newspaper also carried news of the death in detention of journalist Krishna Sen. Managing editor of the daily Janapraha Bishnu Ghimire was arrested on an accusation of extortion against the owner of a restaurant. He was also released on 5 August.The release of the two editors followed pressure from journalist organisations, including the Federation of Nepalese Journalists, which on 4 July began a campaign against press freedom violations. On 2 August most Nepalese newspapers published a blank page in the place of their usual editorial pages to protest at the harassment of the press and to demand the setting up of a government commission to investigate cases of mal-treatment of journalists.center_img News Follow the news on Nepal Organisation News May 17, 2019 Find out more June 8, 2020 Find out more August 7, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Reporters Without Borders urges Nepalese premier to halt arrests of journalists Help by sharing this information to go furtherlast_img read more

first_imgyoungvet/iStock(NEW YORK) — The $1.5 billion Mega Millions jackpot winner came across her history-making lottery prize when she decided to go on a scenic drive during down-time on a trip to Greenville, South Carolina, her attorney said. That’s when she drove past a KC Mart, and when its signs about the jackpot caught her eye, she stopped in to buy a ticket, Jason Kurland, the attorney, said in a Thursday statement. “After checking her ticket the morning after the drawing, she was in complete shock and disbelief,” Kurland said. “She stared motionless at the ticket for what felt like hours, then came the jumping and screams of joy.” The sole winner of the $1.5 billion Mega Millions jackpot from October 2018 came forward to claim her prize last week. The winner, a South Carolina woman who chose to remain anonymous, selected the cash option of a one-time payment of $877,784,124. The payout is the largest to a single winner in U.S. history. “Words can’t describe the feeling of such incredible luck,” the winner said in a statement released by her attorney Thursday. “I do realize that such good fortune carries a tremendous social responsibility, and it gives me a unique opportunity to assist, support and contribute to charities and causes that are close to my heart.” Kurland said the winner is donating money to the Ronald McDonald House of Charities of Columbia, South Carolina; the Red Cross Alabama Region’s tornado relief fund; the city of Simpsonville, South Carolina, Art Center; the One SC Fund for Hurricane Florence relief; and In The Middle, a Columbia, South Carolina, charity for women undergoing breast cancer treatment.

first_imgvmargineanu/iStock(STONE COUNTY, Ark.) — An Arkansas sheriff’s deputy was killed Thursday morning in a shooting that left one other person wounded and the suspected killer dead, police said.Mike Stephens, 56, was identified as the Stone County Sheriff’s deputy that was killed in the incident, Arkansas State Police Spokesman Bill Sadler said at a press conference. The suspected shooter was also killed in the incident, but it was not immediately clear whether he took his own life or if he was shot by other deputies. He has not been identified.Stephens was a 20-year veteran of law enforcement and a U.S. Army veteran, Stone County Chief Deputy Sheriff Zach Alexander said at the press conference.“Every action that he’s ever done, he always would be the first guy in somewhere and last one out,” Alexander said.Authorities were called to a home in the rural area of Leslie at 8:02 a.m. over a domestic welfare check, Sadler said. Stephens arrived at 8:39 a.m. and encountered a woman who he began talking to before gunfire quickly erupted.Stephens was pronounced dead at the scene. The woman, who was not identified, was wounded and taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries, according to Sadler.Sadler noted that the amount of time it took Stephens to reach the scene was because of how far away from the home he was when he got the call to respond. He declined to say whether officials had ever been called to the home before.Earlier Wednesday, the Stone County Office of Emergency Management said in a tweet that the coroner was headed to the scene. Stephens and the suspect’s body were taken to a crime lab to be examined for forensic evidence.Agents with the Arkansas State Police Criminal Investigation Division are investigating the incident.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

first_imgcsfotoimages/iStock(INDIANAPOLIS) — Adhering to social distancing rules amidst the coronavirus pandemic, hundreds of police officers wearing protective masks stood next to their squad cars lining the track at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for a final salute to a fellow officer who was gunned down while responding to a domestic violence call.Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Officer Breann “Bre” Leath, 24, was described during the service by police chaplain Patricia Holman as a “beautiful flower picked way too soon.”During the Thursday service at the speedway, home to the Indianapolis 500 race, officers watched from a safe distance or tuned in to a livestream on their laptops and cellphones. Leath’s family, including her 3-year-old son, watched the service from several luxury suites to keep a safe distance apart.“She had a way of making you think, ‘You know what? I really can do better. I want more for myself,” one of Leath’s sisters, Tiana Leath, told the mourners. “I’m going to make you proud. Most definitely.”Choking back tears, she added that Leath’s son “will get so much love and kisses and tickles that you’re going to be jealous.”Leath, who joined the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police force in December 2017, was killed on April 9 when she and other officers responded to a domestic violence call at a residence. Authorities allege that suspect Elliahs Dorsey, 27, who has been charged with murder, opened fire through a closed door striking Leath.Speaking at the funeral, Indianapolis Police Chief Randal Taylor said Leath died while she “courageously stood her post, representing what’s best in society.”“By simply putting on the uniform she made the world a better place,” Taylor said.Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb said Leath’s death is “a stinging reminder of the risk that those who wear the uniform face every day.”Following the funeral, motorcycle police led a black hearse carrying Leath’s casket on a procession that went past police headquarters and the department’s East District headquarters, where it stopped in front of Leath’s squad car as new police recruits saluted and commemorated the place Leath served her final watch call.

Yet there are5,000 more women of the same age range in employment in 2004 as there were in2003.
