Sandhills Road House / Fearon Hay Architects

first_img Sandhills Road House / Fearon Hay Architects New Zealand Year:  ArchDaily Photographs:   Patrick ReynoldsText description provided by the architects. Located on the Eastern coastline of the Huaraki Gulfs, Great Barrier Island the ‘Great Barrier House’ is a relaxed holiday destination that references traditional notions of bach occupation. Drawing inspiration from the idea of two sheds linked by stretched tarpaulin, the house consists of two habitable areas joined by an expansive floating pavilion. Wide expanses of sliding glass doors & adjustable blinds allow the pavilion to respond to different environmental conditions while providing the location for eating dining & relaxing within the natural surrounds of the property.Save this picture!©  Patrick ReynoldsRecommended ProductsDoorsLonghiDoor – HeadlineFiber Cements / CementsSwisspearlSwisspearl Largo Fiber Cement PanelsFiber Cements / CementsDuctal®Ductal® Cladding Panels (EU)WindowsJansenWindows – Janisol PrimoClad in band sawn ply sheet the ‘sheds’ provide a modern take on the use of vernacular building materials. Coupled with the use of permeable metal screens the ability to manipulate outlook and environment from within the ‘sheds’, provides further reference to traditional notions of holiday occupation and response to site. As locations for the bedrooms and bathrooms these built forms offer a sense of refuge from the open pavilion space.

Standing upon the roof deck looking South-West towards aging corrugated farm sheds and looking North-East towards the expansive seascape, the Great Barrier House sits comfortably within its environment; offering a private retreat while allowing an occupation that embraces the surrounding landscape and context.Save this picture!©  Patrick ReynoldsProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse on the Water / Le 2 WorkshopArticlesTic-Tac House / Forte, Gimenes & Marcondes Ferraz ArquitetosArticles Share Sandhills Road House / Fearon Hay ArchitectsSave this projectSaveSandhills Road House / Fearon Hay Architects Projects Save this picture!©  Patrick Reynolds+ 16 Share “COPY” Photographs Architects: Fearon Hay Architects Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard CopyHouses•Great Barrier Island, New Zealand ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard “COPY” 2008 Houses Area:  250 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeFearon Hay ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesGreat Barrier IslandNew ZealandPublished on August 23, 2009Cite: “Sandhills Road House / Fearon Hay Architects” 23 Aug 2009.

Nageswara Rao, Krishna Murari & Ravindra Bhat expressed disinclination to entertain the petitions, following which the petitioner chose to withdraw the same.The court has however granted them liberty to approach the High Court.Political parties Communist Party of India (Marxist) Tamil Nadu wing  and Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) were among the petitioners”We appreciate the political parties coming up before us, but we are not inclined to entertain this”, the bench remarked at the outset.The petitioners submitted that they were asking for implementation of the OBC reservation, for which provisions are already there, and not to make any new reservation.”What is the fundamental right to reservation?”, observed Justice L Nageswara Rao in response.The bench said that the remedy of Article 32 of Constitution was available only for violation of fundamental rights, and asked “whose fundamental rights were being violated in the instant case?””We are happy to see so many political parties at the same platform for the same cause, something unusual for Tamil Nadu”, the bench remarked, before allowing the petitioners to withdraw the plea.Background The petitions contended “there is no rational basis for not extending the benefit of 50 per cent reservation for OBCs, as envisaged under the State laws of Tamil Nadu, to the State-captured seats in the All India Quota”In light of this, it is averred that providing professional education for marginalised people is very much essential not only for empowering such sections of society but also for democratisation of the entire society and gradual eradication of caste oppression, discrimination and casteism. It will also provide an opportunity for talented students belonging to these backward classes who are notable to secure competitive marks because of historic reasons of prolonged subjugation and their economic and social circumstances.The reservation has its backing in the state legislation ‘The Tamil Nadu Backward Classes, Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Reservation of Seats in Educational Institutions and of Appointments or Posts in the Services under the State) Act,1993’, and that similar enactments are in force in other states too.The plea is filed, praying for the following relief-i) Direction to the Ministries of Health and Family Welfare, HRD, Social Justice and Empowerment, the Medical Council of India and the National Board of Examinations to follow and apply The Tamil Nadu Backward Classes, Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Reservation ofSeats in Educational Institutions and of appointments or posts in the Services under the State) Act,1993 granting 50% reservations for OBC (Backward Classes & Most Backward Classes) and18% reservations for Scheduled Caste and1% reservation for Scheduled Tribe for filling up ‘State surrendered seats in All India Quota seats’ (other than in the Central institutions) in the State of Tamil Nadu in Undergraduate & Postgraduate medical & dental Courses for the academic year 2020-21 and continue to do so for the coming academic years accordingly.ii) Direct the Respondents herein to produce the records pertaining to the Result of NEET-PG, 2020 published on 09.05.2020 by the National Board of examinations relating to the filling up of the All India Quota.iii) Direct the Respondents herein to set aside/modify/revise the NEET-PG 2020 so published relating to the filling up of the State surrendered seats to All India Quota by providing reservation to OBCs, SC-STs as per the 1993 Act. Next Storylast_img read more

Ex-officer Amber Guyger takes the stand in wrong-apartment killing: ‘I was scared to death’

first_imgimaginima/iStock(DALLAS) — The former Dallas police officer accused of killing an unarmed man in his apartment took the stand in her own defense on Friday, overcome with emotion as she was instructed to tell the jurors what happened when she opened the apartment door.“I was scared to death,” Amber Guyger testified, and said her “heart rate just skyrocketed.”Guyger, who is white, walked into the apartment belonging to Botham Jean, who is black, on Sept. 6, 2018, allegedly believing it was hers. Guyger was still wearing her police uniform when she fired two shots at Jean, who was eating ice cream in his unlocked apartment.Guyger, who was fired from the Dallas Police Department weeks after the shooting, is charged with murder.Guyger, speaking calmly and quietly, testified Friday that she mistakenly parked on the wrong floor that night; she said the parking floors at her apartment building were not clearly marked.She re-enacted how she reached the apartment door, with her backpack, lunchbox and police vest in her left hand, and testified that she heard the sound of someone walking inside.When Guyger, then 30, put the key into the lock that night, she noticed the door was “cracked open” and that putting the key into the lock forced the door open to the dark apartment, she testified. Guyger said earlier she had experienced problems getting the door to lock completely at her apartment.Jean, an accountant for the international auditing firm PricewaterhouseCoopers, was sitting on his couch when Guyger opened the door, prosecutors said.Before Jean could take a few steps toward the door, Guyger leveled her gun and fired twice, Dallas County Assistant District Attorney Jason Hermus said.“No opportunity for de-escalation, no opportunity for him to surrender. Bang, bang. Rapid,” Hermus told the jury in his opening statement.Hermus said Guyger’s apartment was directly beneath Jean’s fourth-floor unit. Not only did Guyger mistakenly park on the wrong floor of the complex, she walked down a long hallway, passing 16 different apartments, but failed to realize she was not headed to her front door, Hermus said.Hermus said Guyger appeared to be planning a rendezvous with her police partner and lover. Hermus showed the jury text messages Guyger sent her partner moments before the shooting and argued that during that communication, Guyger became distracted and confused about where she was.“In the last 10 minutes of Bo’s life, Amber Guyger made a series of unreasonable errors, and unreasonable decisions, and unreasonable choices — the kind of choices and decisions that only she could have stopped,” Hermus said.Defense attorney Robert Rogers said in his opening argument that Guyger was exhausted from working 40 hours in four days, including a long overtime shift helping a SWAT team arrest three robbers.He described the configuration of the apartment complex, where Guyger had lived for about two months, as “a confusing place” with floors in the parking garage and apartment doors not clearly marked.He painted the picture of Guyger entering the apartment and seeing the figure of a large individual inside coming toward her, yelling, “Hey! Hey!’ and drowning out her orders for him to show her his hands.“After this incident, the investigators interviewed and learned that 93 tenants had unintentionally parked on the wrong floor,” Rogers said.He said another 46 tenants who lived on the floors where Guyger and Jean resided had gone to the wrong apartment and placed their key in the door.Rogers denied that Guyger was planning a rendezvous that night with her partner, calling the prosecution’s assertion “speculation.”This is a developing story.

Authorities: 158 people arrested at ‘massive underground party’ in LA County

first_imgLos Angeles County Sheriff’s Office via FacebookBy MEREDITH DELISO, ABC News(LOS ANGELES) — Los Angeles County deputies arrested nearly 160 people at a “massive underground party” that violated state coronavirus orders, authorities said.Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said the “super-spreader” event, which was held in a vacant home in Palmdale on Saturday, was also the site of alleged underage trafficking.“This was a flagrant violation of the governor’s health order,” Villanueva said at a press briefing Tuesday. But, he added, “even without the health order, these actions were criminal in nature.”Los Angeles County deputies arrested 120 adults and 38 juveniles at the party, all of whom were issued citations for violating health orders, authorities said. Among those arrested, five people were also charged with burglary, one with possession of a firearm and one with obstruction. The “entire organizing network” of the party — three 18-year-olds and two 17-year-olds — was arrested, authorities said.Deputies recovered six firearms and were able to rescue a 17-year-old human trafficking victim, Villanueva added.A rental truck with video equipment was found at the scene, authorities said.“This is how brazen this operation was,” Villanueva said.The sheriff’s department is targeting these types of “super-spreader events,” as opposed to restaurants and businesses that violate county and state health orders, Villanueva said.“We don’t have unlimited resources,” he said. “This is something that is worth spending our resources to clamp down on because these super-spreader events, if we get rid of them, we’re going to improve our ability to fight the pandemic on a whole scale.”At least half a dozen of these types of events occur on a “weekly basis” on weekends, Villanueva said. The organizers of this event allegedly promoted parties in Pomona and Ontario over the weekend, he added.It is unknown at this time if anyone arrested this weekend has tested positive for COVID-19, officials said Tuesday.The bust comes as Los Angeles County is reporting record COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations. The five-day average for daily new cases is 8,993 — nearly double what was reported the day after Thanksgiving, health officials said.Last month, the county issued a temporary stay-at-home order and banned outdoor dining amid the surge. The county is now under a state-issued stay-at-home order after the Southern California region’s available intensive care unit capacity dipped below 15% on Saturday. Both orders prohibited gatherings with people outside one’s household.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Linking extreme interannual changes in prey availability to foraging behaviour and breeding investment in a marine predator, the macaroni penguin

first_imgUnderstanding the mechanisms that link prey availability to predator behaviour and population change is central to projecting how a species may respond to future environmental pressures. We documented the behavioural responses and breeding investment of macaroni penguins Eudyptes chrysolophus across five breeding seasons where local prey density changed by five-fold; from very low to highly abundant. When prey availability was low, foraging trips were significantly longer and extended overnight. Birds also foraged farther from the colony, potentially in order to reach more distant foraging grounds and allow for increased search times. These extended foraging trips were also linked to a marked decrease in fledgling weights, most likely associated with reduced rates of provisioning. Furthermore, by comparing our results with previous work on this population, it appears that lowered first-year survival rates associated, at least partially, with fledging masses were also evident for this cohort. This study integrates a unique set of prey density, predator behaviour and predator breeding investment data to highlight a possible behavioural mechanism linking perturbations in prey availability to population demography.last_img read more

News story: New Competition: Take Cover!

first_imgDASA has launched this competition to focus on protection from ballistic threats and fragmentation for soldiers on the front line. The protection against blast and directed energy threats would also be of interest. Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) threats are outside the scope of this competition.The competition is intended to find a solution that will protect multiple soldiers rather than be used for individual soldier personal protection (such as body armour).The programme is expected to have a duration of three years with multiple phases. Up to £600,000 is available for Phase 1 for 6 month duration projects. Over £1-million of additional funding may be available for future phases.This competition is now open and closes at 12pm 24 October 2018.If you have any queries on this competition, please do contact us at [email protected] or sign up for alerts on our news pages.last_img read more
