Cipolla House proposes the fusion of several architectural elements in a continuous organization, which is at the same time a spatial configuration, a system of circulations and a structure. Its materiality is defined with a single thickness that is consistent on walls, slabs, beams, ramps and stairs. Houses Save this picture!© Fernando AldaThe house follows the same philosophy as other projects of ours, which privilege inhabiting a structure rather than structuring a dwelling; the project is a system in equilibrium. The hierarchy of the house is conveyed in its materiality and thickness, which, in its path through the space and the structure, solves all the necessary elements with a single formal / structural operation.Save this picture!© Fernando AldaThus, a basic domestic program composed of three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room, an integrated kitchen and dining area, plus a small outdoor cellar, is laid out along an exposed reinforced concrete slab 20 cms thick. The slab frames a series of architectural elements: the entrance and staircase towards the house, the bridge towards the roof, the beam that stiffens it and that functions simultaneously as the handrail, the roof which is also the eave of an intermediate space that precedes the entrance, the transverse structural walls that divide the interior spaces, the staircase that leads out to the sea and the beam that supports it; as if all of these elements were inseparable and integrated. Save this picture!© Fernando AldaSave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!© Fernando AldaWe further integrate two structural adjustments: a small one square meter wall attached to the beam of the bridge towards the roof is detached on the outside, counteracting the torsion of the beam with its weight. This wall is also attached to the ground through a metal tensioner, fixed to a concrete cube underground. Likewise, the transverse wall that encloses the house in the main bedroom area extends towards the sea only to counteract the torsion that the entire structure exerts towards its opposite side.Save this picture!© Fernando AldaSave this picture!© Fernando AldaProject gallerySee allShow lessSOM: Art + Engineering + ArchitecturePanel DiscussionCarlo Ratti Associati’s Proposed Milan Science Campus Features Robotically-Assembled…Architecture News Share 2018 Architects: Felipe Assadi Arquitectos Area Area of this architecture project Chile Cipolla House / Felipe Assadi Arquitectos Projects Photographs Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officeFelipe Assadi ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductsStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPichidanguiOn InstagramChilePublished on August 07, 2018Cite: “Cipolla House / Felipe Assadi Arquitectos” [Casa Cipolla / Felipe Assadi Arquitectos] 07 Aug 2018.

Galleries felt like a natural inspiration because they are essentially windowless spaces (necessary for art preservation) that need to be well-lit; therefore, special design attention is given to creating light and air. Once we began to study art galleries, we found ourselves making other gallery-inspired decisions as well. For instance, largely inspired by the display of Alex Katz’s works, we chose large-scale simple art, rather than smaller or busier pieces that might add visual clutter or fuss. Two architectural chairs from the 1960s were sourced from a gallery in Hungary.Save this picture!© Bjorg MagneaIn order to maximize light and air, the architect located the staircase at the center of the building, which lets natural light from both ends of the house into all habitable rooms. The stairs are sectioned off with the building’s only interior shear walls, therefore the stairwell itself obstructs natural light. We did not want the stairs to feel tight and tunnel-like, so we designed windows between the studs and pipes. These windows connect the stairwell to the naturally lit corridor, so the staircase feels airier. The staircase windows also house custom light fixtures that light the stairs when necessary.Save this picture!PlansIn a 12’ wide space, every inch counts. Therefore it was decided nothing would be proud of the wall. Base moulding, door trims, backsplashes, outlet receptacles, etc are all flush. A ¼” reveal made with a reglet runs throughout the house, defining trim details, window casings, room thresholds, etc. The concept of the narrow reveal speaks directly to the narrowness of the house.Save this picture!© Emma TannenbaumThe house has 10’ ceilings, so we designed custom 98” high pocket doors that draw the eye up and also allow pieces to be moved in and out of spaces more easily. When the pocket doors are open, the house feels like one long open gallery space. When they are closed for privacy, the custom oil rubbed bronze hardware adds simple, sophisticated decoration.We wanted the space to feel like fine design, however traditional luxury materials like marble felt too busy–the space had to be simple and well-edited, yet rich at the same time.Save this picture!© Emma TannenbaumTherefore we kept the material palette to a minimum: wood, concrete and bronze with contrasting black and bright white backdrops. Ash wood–a light-hued hardwood–runs throughout (floors, stairs, kitchen, cabinetry other). All countertops and backsplashes are a light-grey concrete, which is a reference to the seaport’s cobblestone streets. Two of the bathrooms feature custom encaustic concrete tile as well. All hardware, light switches and plumbing fixtures are custom oil rubbed bronze, which is a reference to the dark zinc facade of the building. In all, these decisions feel elegant, sophisticated and intentional.Text by: Designer Sarah Mendel, Principal, of Cochineal Design.Project gallerySee allShow lesspH+ architect’s Iceland Wharf Creates a “Flexible, Tethered, Living and Working Envi…Architecture NewsTQ62 / BOOST studioSelected Projects Sharelast_img read more

Two more journalists killed in Baghdad region

Safaa Ismail Inad of the newspaper Al-Watan was shot in the head on the night of 12 September. His body was found near Sadr City, in east Baghdad. Hadi Anawi Al-Joubouri, the representative of Iraqi Union of Journalists in the Diyala region, was gunned down in an ambush on a road north of the capital the previous day.“We can no longer find the words to express our outrage at this unending dark tragedy for journalists in Iraq,” the press freedom organisation said. “These two men were murdered, and we again call on the Iraqi authorities to carry out investigations, so that those responsible for these murders are arrested and tried.”Reporters Without Borders added: “Journalists have been murdered, kidnapped and attacked with complete impunity since the start of the war in Iraq. They must be given physical protection as a matter of urgency.”At total of 106 journalists and media assistants have been killed in Iraq since the start of the war in 2003.

Suspend water charges and bonuses at Irish Water – Collins

first_imgAndrew [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up WATER charges should be immediately suspended until there is a complete review of the workings of Irish Water and how it is to be funded, according to Fianna Fail TD, Niall Collins.The Limerick deputy said this Wednesday that Fianna Fáil will force a special debate on Irish Water during its private members business in the Dáil this week.The opposition party is calling on the Government to fully review the funding model at Irish Water and immediately cease the payment of bonuses at the company.“There must now be a full and frank debate on the future of Irish Water. Since its inception there have been a number of high profile controversies at the organisation, including highly damaging revelations about the bonus system being constructed within the company.“Any public trust with the operation of Irish Water has been broken. People I talk to in Limerick are enraged at the bonus culture in the company along with the utter confusion as to what families will actually have to pay when the first bills land in January. The series of damaging mishaps – from the outrageous set-up and consultancy costs that only emerged under media questioning to revelations about five figure bonuses for senior managers – have left people in Limerick frustrated and angry.“Disgracefully, when Fine Gael and the Labour Party forced through the legislation setting up this quango, they did not allow any debate in Dáil Éireann. Indeed, at that time Fianna Fáil led a walk-out from the Dáil in protest at the Government’s strategy.“It is clear that the time has now come for an honest and fundamental debate about the role of this quango and what part it is going to play in the country’s future. We are using our Private Members’ time to call for a full review of Irish Water, with a full suspension of charges while that review is ongoing.“Fine Gael and Labour rejected debate in the past and we can now see the full damaging impact of their decision to push ahead with flawed Irish Water plans. This week they have the chance to press the pause button on that process and facilitate a fundamental review of the organisation. I would urge FG and Labour backbenchers in Limerick who privately claim to despair at the damage Irish Water is causing to take a stand and support Fianna Fáil in our attempt to force honest debate.” Linkedin Facebook WhatsApp Email Twittercenter_img Print Advertisement NewsSuspend water charges and bonuses at Irish Water – CollinsBy Staff Reporter – October 22, 2014 717 Previous articleOvercrowding crisis at animal sanctuaryNext articleLimerick woman in LGBT top 100 business leaders Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ielast_img read more

Paragonix Announces First-in-Man use of LUNGguard™ Donor Lung Preservation System by Duke Hospital

first_imgLocal NewsBusiness WhatsApp CAMBRIDGE, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 22, 2021– Paragonix Technologies, the leading hypothermic cardiothoracic organ preservation provider, announced today the first-in-man clinical use of the only FDA cleared cold storage device for donor lungs, its LUNGguard™ Donor Lung Preservation System, by Duke University Hospital. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: Paragonix Announces First-in-Man use of LUNGguard™ Donor Lung Preservation System by Duke Hospital (Photo: Business Wire) “Donor lungs are sensitive to injury and the current ice storage of lungs risks cellular injury, especially with the increasing transport distances and times now experienced by lung transplant centers,” said John Haney, MD, MPH, Surgical Director, Duke Lung Transplant. Dr Haney was the implanting transplant surgeon on the first four cases using the LUNGguard system. “Duke Health is committed to pioneering new innovations that benefit transplant patients and changing the way donor lungs are transported has this potential.” The first-in-the-world use of the LUNGguard system preserved donor lungs for 7 hours on their journey to provide a patient suffering from Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) with new lungs. Since the initial first-in-man, the Duke team has performed an additional four lung transplantations using the LUNGguard System. These early cases have demonstrated the versatility of the device in multiple applications including DCD and DBD donors, total ischemic times from 3 hours to 12 hours, and indications varying from emphysema to cystic fibrosis. The LUNGguard System represents a radical advance from ice and off-the-shelf coolers that has been the standard-of-care for over 50 years of organ transplantation. For the first time, transplant teams have access to an FDA cleared and CE marked hypothermic lung preservation device that can precisely maintain and monitor the environment necessary for donor lungs. “At Carolina Donor Services, our mission is to maximize the passing of the heroic gift of life from one person to another through organ donation. We are constantly embracing new technologies that will help safeguard organs and ensure better outcomes for those patients waiting for the gift of life,” said Danielle Niedfeldt, President and CEO of Carolina Donor Services, the organ donation organization that supported these cases. “I am honored that our team could be part of the first-in-man use of the LUNGguard system and we are excited by its positive impact in lung transplantation and saving more lives.” The development of this system has been supported by a collaboration between Paragonix and the Lung Transplant Foundation, a leading lung transplant patient advocacy group. “The LUNGguard device is a project that we have been working on with Paragonix for the past three years, because we saw the critical need for this technology in lung transplantation. To be able to help another IPF patient in the first-in-man case could not have been more significant to me personally,” said Jeffery Goldstein, President and Founder of the Lung Transplant Foundation and lung transplant recipient. The LUNGguard System is the latest addition to the Paragonix portfolio of organ preservation and transport systems. It is built on the same proven technology architecture as the Paragonix™ SherpaPak Cardiac Transport System, which has been widely adopted for heart transplantation over the past two years. Additionally, Paragonix has FDA cleared and CE marked systems for kidney, liver, and pancreas transplantation. “Our team at Paragonix strives to provide donor organs and transplant recipients every possible advantage for a second chance at life,” said Lisa Anderson, Ph.D., Founder, President, and COO of Paragonix Technologies. “We are honored to partner with the team at Duke and Carolina Donor Services to reach this incredible milestone and begin making an impact to as many lung transplant patients as possible.” About Paragonix Technologies Paragonix Technologies designs, produces, and markets organ preservation and transport devices that safeguard organs during the journey between donor and transplant recipient patients. Our award-winning devices mitigate risk in an otherwise high stakes environment by combining best-in class transplant products with a centralized communication and data transfer app to eable better coordination and efficiency during donor organ procurements. Paragonix SherpaPak™ CTS is the only commercially available FDA-cleared and CE-marked preservation and transport device for adult and pediatric donor hearts destined for transplantation. Paragonix is the sole sponsor of GUARDIAN, the largest international clinical data registry on heart preservation, capturing clinical outcome data on Paragonix SherpaPak™ CTS and all other heart preservation technologies. Paragonix’s LUNGguard™ is the only FDA-cleared and CE-marked cold storage preservation and transport device for donor lungs and was commercially launched in the US and in Europe in December 2020. Paragonix is also developing preservation devices for pancreas, kidney and liver — designed to improve donor organ quality and extend donor organ preservation time.

The Division Bench of Justice Hima Kohli and Justice Subramonium Prasad has further directed the University to provide comfort letters for undergraduate students who are seeking admissions in Universities abroad. Today, the Dean of Examinations informed the court that around 900 students approached the University seeking comfort letters to be sent explaining the delay in declaration of results to both the Universities in India and abroad. Out of these, 272 requests were for comfort letters to be sent to the foreign universities. The court informed the University that it only needs to address the requests received for foreign universities as the University Grants Commission has already asked the Indian Universities to not to ask for results from students seeking admissions in postgraduate programmes till the revised academic plan is received. For postgraduate students seeking admissions in foreign universities, the court highlighted that the Delhi University shall be declaring the results of students on its online portal on September 28. The court emphasised that the results shall be uploaded on the University’s letterhead along with the digital signature of the concerned authority, and it shall not carry an rider stating that these results are provisional in nature. ‘Students shall be able to utilise these online results in whatever way they want to’, the court said. For the undergraduate students seeking admissions in foreign universities, the court noted that comfort letters will be issued to the concerned universities directly in the format decided by the Grievance Redressal Committee. While issuing the comfort letters, priority should be given to students on the basis of cut-off dates prescribed by the foreign universities. Next Storylast_img read more

For all the moms out there who had a tough recovery from pregnancy—here you go,” she wrote. “If I can do it, so can you. Love you all!!”Williams, 36, gave birth to her daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., in September 2017, and has not played in a major tournament since. It was revealed last week that the 23-time Grand Slam winner had dropped from No. 1 to No. 453 in the Women’s Tennis Association rankings during her maternity leave. Still, her coach said in an interview on May 14 that Williams had been “improving in all areas fast” and “will be ready” to play.“Serena will play the French Open to win it,” he said. “Can she do it?
