We are looking for a contemporary and genuine architecture from Pernambuco.Located in a private condominium on the outskirts of the urban perimeter of Caruaru, the main city in the rural area of ​​Pernambuco, the plot of land has southeast orientation, with a higher incidence of winds during the year.Save this picture!© Antônio PreggoWe opted for a simple architecture in the ostentation aspect, but great in the matter of the emotion, of the sensorial symbiosis. We can say that this “way” is absolutely related to the personality of the architects, holders of an intuition more contained in the act of projecting, but sometimes implodes of so much artistic expression and meaning.Save this picture!© Antônio PreggoCobogó House is another architecture that emerges from the emptiness, almost central, a place of arrival, which precedes a subtle architectural promenade.Save this picture!Floor PlanNatural materials such as wood, handmade as hydraulic tile, and apparent and “raw” as concrete, iron and glass, coupled with a subtlety in the use of colors and a low ceiling (2.26m – to the height of the average man with raised arm of the Modulor) give the place a warm and “human” ambience.Save this picture!© Antônio PreggoThe most pragmatic challenge of the project was to meet the relatively large needs program for the lot size (375sqm) and a desire for large and sometimes open spaces. All this in a single floor. The natural solution was to integrate “mandatory setbacks” into environments, eliminating any “dead space” within the boundaries of the terrain, both in the external and internal areas. We can clearly see this intuition from pedestrian access, through the terrace, as well as the garage and the organic garden.Save this picture!SectionEvaldo Coutinho defended architecture as a product of construction, not design. And that the only way to feel its spatial essence was to be in the work itself. The fact that we designed and built the work allowed us to do experiments once more during the execution, which was certainly fundamental to the final result.Save this picture!© Antônio PreggoTwo other important aspects for us were environmental comfort and privacy control. walls, marquises, hollow brick wall, strategically located and dimensioned frames, are some architectural elements that appear as a solution. In some cases, elements, such as the “skin” (apparent manual brick wall) of the front façade that protects the rooms, appear as a solution to both problems. Because it is a leaked wall, it allows the passage of lighting and natural ventilation while giving privacy to the users of the house and allows the street view to them. In addition it is clear from an aesthetic and poetic appeal.Save this picture!© Antônio PreggoConsidering the functional dimension of the house, two premises were important in structuring the plant. We wanted the possibility of two independent and distant accesses, one for a vehicle and another for those who came on foot. It was important for us both to take us initially to the social area of ​​the house. In this way, the room appears with a kind of vestibule, only located in the center of the building, which gives direct access to the intimate area and kitchen. A practical and simple solution.Project gallerySee allShow lessHeatherwick’s Pier 55 Project Given New Life by New York State GovernorArchitecture NewsStellar Drawings Selected as Winners of WAF’s Inaugural Architecture Drawing PrizeArchitecture News Share Save this picture!© Antônio Preggo+ 21 Share Photographs CopyAbout this officeAllouchie ArquitetosOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBrazilPublished on October 26, 2017Cite: “Cobogó House / Allouchie Arquitetos” [Casa Cobogó / Allouchie Arquitetos] 26 Oct 2017.

Land rights cause people to act in crazy ways

first_imgFacebook by Andrew CareySign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up [email protected]“THE most sensible and decent people behave in crazy ways when it comes to land”, according to a Limerick barrister.Defence counsel Mark Nicholas BL, made his comments during the sentencing hearing of a Limerick man accused of threatening to kill a business owner in a dispute over a right of way to his home.Brian Healy (48) of Sexton Street North pleaded guilty to threatening to kill Patrick Moloney at the Woodworkers store in Thomondgate on May 19, 2012.Limerick Circuit Court heard evidence from Detective Garda Keith Harmon, who said there had been difficulties in the past between the two men over a “common area or passageway” between Mr Healy’s home and the Woodworkers store owned by Mr Moloney.On May 19, 2012, Mr Healy was walking to his mother’s house where he lived when Mr Moloney came out from his shop. A n argument ensued and Mr Healy said he had a gun and would use it to shoot Mr Moloney.He also threatened to “burn out” the business and slit Mr Moloney’s throat.Mr Moloney’s father was waiting for his son in a car nearby and made a statement to Gardaí of overhearing the exchange.Prosecuting counsel John O’Sullivan said it caused great distress to Mr. Moloney.Mr Healy attempted to goad Mr Moloney into hitting him. There was no physical altercation between the two men and no further incidents since.Detective Harmon said Mr Healy admitted he threatened to “knock him out” but denied saying he would use a gun.Gardaí did not search Mr Healy’s home for a gun.Mark Nicholas BL said that his client, who had no previous convictions, regretted what happened and he had no intention of harming Mr Moloney.“The most sensible and decent people behave in crazy ways when it comes to land,” he said, adding that the house, which was owned by his client’s mother until she died, was to be sold.Applying the probation act, Judge Carroll Moran said that Brian Healy said some “very unpleasant things but he had a previous good record and there was no issue between the two parties since.“If he does it again or anything similar, he will likely go to jail”, the judge warned.

Full survey results can be found in the company’s white paper, “Property Appraisers in 2020—Embracing New Technology to Reinvigorate the Industry.”Of the 400+ answers received from Computershare’s current network of appraisers, 35 percent responded that they are already utilizing desktop technology for a least a quarter of their appraisers.Overall, Computershare found that their survey results point to the fact that “U.S. appraisers believe their industry is on the brink of significant change.” Despite only 12 percent of respondents reporting that desktop appraisals make up half their work, 37 percent said they expect to join this number by 2020 or 2021.Desktop appraisals differ from the standard appraisal method where an appraiser will visit the property to personally evaluate the interior and exterior. With desktop appraisers, appraisers instead utilize public records and online tools to make their assessment. Some appraisers choose to employ a hybrid method of the standard and desktop appraisal.Among the challenges appraisers face is the issue of supply and demand, according to Computershare. Citing data from a 2017 Appraisal Subcommittee report by the Federal Financial Institution Examinations Council, appraisers are outnumbered by real estate agents 25-to-1.Time and cost is also a factor for today’s appraisers, according to Computershare. Citing Property Solutions data, the company revealed that an appraisal in some parts of Washington state took nearly four weeks to complete at a cost of $1,800—while in suburban Illinois this was decreased to less than a week and $450.“Like many professions, property appraising currently faces some interesting challenges as well as the emergence of significant technological changes,” Nick Oldfield, CEO of Computershare said.  “However, our white paper shows that, by embracing new methods, whether desktop appraisals, cloud computing or the use of drones, the industry can dramatically increase its efficiency and overcome other issues, such as declining numbers and a shortage of new appraisers entering the industry.

Man shot to death by police after livestreaming chase on Facebook

first_imgEvgen_Prozhyrko/iStock(EDINA, Minn.) — A Minnesota man was livestreaming on Facebook when he was shot by police shortly after getting out of his vehicle after a chase. Around 10:22 p.m. on Saturday, police in Edina, Minnesota, began pursuing Brian Quinones after a man “confronted officers with a knife,” according to the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office. Quinones, 30, allegedly ran a red light and then refused to pull over, according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.The Sheriff’s Office has not publicly identified Quinones as the deceased. But family members publicly confirmed his death and the Hennepin County Medical Examiner later identified the man as Quinones, according to ABC affiliate KTSP-TV.“He didn’t deserve it; he didn’t deserve to leave the world like this,” Joshua Quinones, Brian’s brother, said in an interview with KSTP. “He was a musician, he was a barber, he was just such a humble person.”In the Facebook Live video, Quinones can be seen getting out of the vehicle with what appeared to be a knife. Officers are then heard shouting commands at Brian. Twenty seconds after Quinones gets out of the car, multiple gunshots are fired. The chase ended in the nearby town of Richfield.Joshua Quinones said he spoke with his brother earlier in the day and knew something was up.“He was just tired,” he said.He said local law enforcement failed his brother.“I’m just speechless of what happened. I just think they could’ve done better,” Joshua Quinones said. “At least Tased with a Taser gun or something. Really? Shoot him between four police officers. That’s just too much.”“The Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office continues to investigate a Sept. 7 officer-involved shooting, the City of Edina grieves alongside the family of the deceased, the officers involved and their families, and the Richfield and Edina communities,” according to a joint statement from the Richfield and Edina police departments.The shooting is an active investigation, officials said.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

The importance of Antarctic krill in biogeochemical cycles

first_imgAntarctic krill (Euphausia superba) are swarming, oceanic crustaceans, up to two inches long, and best known as prey for whales and penguins – but they have another important role. With their large size, high biomass and daily vertical migrations they transport and transform essential nutrients, stimulate primary productivity and influence the carbon sink. Antarctic krill are also fished by the Southern Ocean’s largest fishery. Yet how krill fishing impacts nutrient fertilisation and the carbon sink in the Southern Ocean is poorly understood. Our synthesis shows fishery management should consider the influential biogeochemical role of both adult and larval Antarctic krill.last_img read more
